10 Books You Have to Read in School That Don't Suck


Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

Although just about any of John Steinbeck’s major novels can be considered assigned reading, Of Mice and Men seems the most common, and is probably the most accessible for just about everybody. It tells the heart-breaking story of two friends, one typical (Carl) and the other with an intellectual disability (Lenny). There’s a big accident in the novella, and one friend is forced to do something for the other that just has to be read. Another great book that definitely requires a hanky.
