    The Texas Star Reading List is a reading incentive program for middle school students in Birdville ISD. The list is selected by BISD middle school librarians from the Lone Star reading list for students in grades 6-8, and recently published award-winning and highly reviewed titles. We encourage self-selection, allowing students to choose books on the list which align with their tastes and interests.
