When it comes to literature, teaching the classics is important. But it's a good idea to add contemporary titles to your curriculum, too, especially if your students sometimes have trouble connecting with older texts.

That’s why we created the Discovering Literature collection, a curated selection of noteworthy books that are capturing the attention of teachers and students across the country.

This month’s Discovering Literature Digest features books that explore the intersection of family and identity. Whether they’re juggling personal responsibilities in the pursuit of dreams or trying to uncover dark family secrets, the characters in these novels gain a better understanding of themselves as their stories progress.
