85 books for summer reading | Books - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"Whether you're on the road or staying on the porch this summer, a book can be your traveling companion" says Jim Higgins, writes about books and the performing arts.

Here are some suggestions of new and newish books for summer reading, including ones with a Wisconsin pedigree. While these selections keep pleasure reading foremost in mind, some hard-hitting books are included. 

The Milwaukee Public Library encourages your children to join its Super Reader Squad for children 12 and younger, and its teen reader program for youth ages 13 through 18. In addition to the pure pleasure of reading, children and teens can earn prizes. 

If you live in a different community, check with your local library. It probably has a summer reading program, too.

Thanks to my colleague Chris Foran for contributing the pop-culture and baseball sections, and to contributor Mike Fischer,whose previous reviews inspired some of these picks.
