High-school classic "Lord of the Flies."

For many people, the summer months symbolize pleasure reading at its best.

It's a time to indulge in the texts that are most appealing, without scrutiny: an easy beach read, a guilty pleasure, or that book you've always meant to start.

But students at America's most prestigious private schools must still endure the rigors of homework during their summer vacations with a little reading - some required, some merely recommended. The titles cover issues such as war, sexuality, and racial history.
