We'll be reading Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury, for July. While Bradbury is mostly known for his science fiction and horror novels, Dandelion Wine is neither.
Dandelion Wine is the story of a summer in 1928, seen through the eyes of a twelve year old boy. 1928 is an interesting time. Automobiles are still new, and especially in Small Town Midwest, novel and a little scary. There are traveling performers, grandmothers, kids, pets, inventors, families, and all the wonders of three months out of school, for a boy.
It's an episodic novel, so it's easy to read in chunks. Read a bit now, skim that one, and really get involved in this part here...
Pick up your copy now, and start reading! It's a great summer read.
