Principals’ G.O.A.T.s in Literature


Sammy Duncan, Staff Writer

Principals’ G.O.A.T.s  (Greatest of All Time) in Literature:  HHS Principals reveal and describe their favorite books.

The Fault In Our Stars-“I read The Fault in Our Stars when my family was going through one of the most difficult times of our lives. My dad was diagnosed with Stage 3 Colorectal Cancer, and none of us knew how to deal with the unknown of this illness. Even though the novel portrays the effects cancer has on teenagers, some of the feelings expressed were the same. It was almost therapeutic for me to hear how others (even if they were fictional) dealt with fear and depression when cancer monopolizes your life or the life of a loved one. The language in the novel is for a mature audience, but the story is definitely worth the read.” -Mrs. Brock

The Sum of all Fears-“This book is an eye opener to how precarious our place in the world [and] society truly is. I think we sometimes take for granted how easily peace can be shattered and war on an unthinkable scale can erupt. The thought of nuclear war serves as a very effective backdrop to convey this point.” -Mr. Chandler
