The Tome It Lists
New. Clean. Encouraging. Engaging.
The goal for the Tome It Lists is to provide students with a list of recently published, well-written, engaging novels they and the adults in their lives can trust to be awesome reads without worrying about excessive strong language and descriptive sexual scenes.
At Tome Society we believe in intellectual freedom and strive to protect it, but we also recognize a need for a student book award list that promotes high quality, clean books. The It List is meant to be another option in a large group of student book award lists. We want to give students the choice to read new, clean, encouraging books.
We believe students should be encouraged through well-written, fun-to-read literature to rise above discouraging situations and cycles of destructive behavior; to make a difference in the world around them; and to look beyond themselves and reflect on how their personal decisions will impact present and future generations.
