The Matched series by Ally Condie is dystopian (think Hunger Games and Delirium) and will challenge how you perceive the world we live in, and how wildly different it could be! The second novel in the series, Crossed, is out now and the third, Reached, will be out later in 2012. Ava Jae writes about Matched #1 on her blog at avajae.blogspot.com but you can find out more about the series on amazon or goodreads.com
“The Secret Life of Bees” by Sue Monk Kidd is a quiet story about a young girl who lives in the deep South during the 1960's. As she comes of age, she runs away from her unhappy home with her widowed father, in search of her mother's roots; ultimately to try to find out who she is. I have shared this book with many. It will always be one of my favorites.
