These books are a great fit for an ELL student and/or a Newcomer to the United States. Immigrant teens and/or a teen whose native language is not English must learn English as well as fit in socially and academically. The majority of teens in this demographic are reading below a second grade reading level. School textbooks are written at-level, leaving them little room to succeed. Our hope with these series is to give ELL teens real-world information along with great fictional stories at lower reading levels, so they can not only increase reading fluency and math numeracy but also assimilate with success.
