The Book of Ruth
100 Books to Read in a Lifetime -- a bucket list of books to create a well-read life, from the Amazon Book Editors., www.amazon.com/...
The Fault in Our Stars - Great dialogue. Great characters. Laughter and tears. Love it, John Green!
The Lovely Bones - Get past the first heartbreaking chapter and you'll be grateful you did. SO worthwhile...
Vanishing Acts, by Jodi Picoult. Nobody crafts plot, setting and character and works in the backstory like Jodi Picoult.
Debut YA novel by Karen Finneyfrock. To quote Sherman Alexie: "...hillarious, exciting, and as painful as anybody's teenage years. READ IT, PLEASE."
"Nolite te bastardes Carborundorum" Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale
The 79 Squares by Malcolm J. Bosse. Sadly, out of print, but it's one with a message that every teenager (and some adults) needs to hear: that it only takes a moment to do something you can regret for the rest of your life.
Everything Will Be All Right by Douglas Wallace, www.amazon.com/... Inspiring read. Great story of hope.
Finally read this! As usual, the book is so much better than the movie.
