In high school you will gradually be introduced to complex readings written for a more mature audience compared to the ones you used to read when in junior high.|
You are about to discover a new class of novels and books that will help you turning from a kid to a young man.

These new readings will help you a lot improving your critical thinking skills, it will take some time and many books: at the beginning you will have a natural tendency to follow and conform to the point of view proposed by authors, but the more you will read, the more you will mature, the more you will start thinking with your own head, comparing your point of views and opinions with the ones proposed by the book.

Some books will present to you things you thought you already knew under a new light, you will discover that point of view is a very important factor when evaluating things and people.

Also, don’t be afraid to express point of views and opinions different from the author’s ones, it is just a sign you are developing your critical thinking and identity.
