1. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
2. The Great Gatsby
3. To Kill a Mockingbird
4. Catcher in the Rye
5. Lord of the Flies
6. A Tale of Two Cities
7. Pride and Prejudice

* The Things They Carried

While my slant is toward American Lit, these books with their illusions and themes help students to become "people on whom nothing is lost."
