Fantastic books that I've read :)
An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
Looking for Alaska by John Green
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Amazing book!
The Mysterious Benedict Society (Mysterious Benedict Society Series #1) by Trenton Lee Stewart. Quite possibly one of the best book series ever.
Another Newberry Medal winner, this book is the story of Karana, a young Indian girl who spends eighteen years alone on an island off the coast of California. Karana doesn't merely survive through her enormous courage and self-reliance, but also finds a measure of happiness in her solitary life. It's a beautiful read for kids ages 10 to 13.
Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell.
Garden of Angels
The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan.
After a summer spent trying to prevent a catastrophic war among the Greek gods, Percy Jackson finds his seventh-grade school year unnervingly quiet. His biggest problem is dealing with his new friend, Tyson—a six-foot-three, mentally challenged homeless kid who follows Percy everywhere, making it hard for Percy to have any “normal” friends.
The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan.
The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series #2)
White Sands, Red Menace by Ellen Klages.
The Green Glass Sea, by Ellen Klages, is a story told by an 11-year-old girl who goes to live with her father, who happens to be a scientist working at Los Alamos during WWII. Fascinating bit of American history that doesn't always get talked about, it is told from the perspective of the children who live in the community. There is a sequel also, called White Sands, Red Menace.
The Green Glass Sea by Ellen Klages.
