HIP novels appeal to teen and preteen readers at all levels, but they are particularly helpful as literacy support and reading intervention for struggling and reluctant readers in Grades 4-12. Whether your students have reading difficulty or not, HIP novels are an excellent addition to any school or classroom library.

What Teachers are Saying about HIP Books
During my visit to Bocage Secondary School, St Lucia (a rural school with a lot of struggling readers)….the Principal said that [a] teacher had started using the 8 copies of the [HIP] book they had available to do reading with her entire class...the students responded really well to the book and enjoyed it so much that word spread and the teachers ended up passing those books throughout the school, class by class.
