Summer Interns, Summer Memories! (Part 1)

During their first week at work, Scholastic’s 2014 summer interns spent some time reminiscing about summers growing up and the books that were important to them as kids. I hope you’ll enjoy getting to know me and the rest of the eager Scholastic interns through our summer suggestions and recollections!

Linas Razgaitis, Editorial Acquisitions Intern

When I wasn’t playing soccer in my backyard or with my team, one of my favorite summer activities was reading Hardy Boys books next to the pool at my country club. I found the series so exciting!

 

Rachel Kersey, Editorial Intern

One summer I read A Separate Peace by John Knowles and was absolutely engrossed and simultaneously terrified by this mysterious story of jealousy and people who may or may not be imaginary.

 

 

Melissa Luttmann, Corporate Communications Intern

I spent my childhood summer days at my granny’s house. She had a screened porch that was the perfect reading spot, and I worked my way through almost every Newbery book there. The one I most vividly remember reading is The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare, which remains one of my favorite books.

 

Marissa Cole, Family and Community Engagement Intern

 

Year round, I wake up every morning wishing it was summer. When the season finally arrives, I live each day to the fullest! Whether I’m waterskiing, hiking, or just hanging by the waves, the hot weather puts me in the best state of mind.

 

 

Brianna Bennett-Corbin, Production Development and Acquisition Intern

I didn’t have much time to read growing up because I was too busy trying to get back at my younger relatives, but I do remember one summer where I read Fame, Glory, and Other Things on My To Do List by Janette Rallison and Honey, Baby, Sweetheart by Deb Caletti. I loved those books with a passion.

 

Khristopher White, Consumer and Professional Publishing Intern

Ender’s Game, the story of a child genius who becomes a major strategist to end a war, was the first book that I ever got fully absorbed into. I was someone who was always rushing to go somewhere new so it was good to slow down and have an engaging read.

 

Look for more favorite books from Scholastic summer interns in parts two and three!

 

About the Author: Mackenzie Morton is an intern at Scholastic this summer and completely thrilled to be working at a place that was such a big part of her childhood!
