Clay Jenkins returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers 13 cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker—his classmate and crush—who committed suicide two weeks earlier. On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he’ll find out how he made the list.

Top School Required Reading You Didn't Hate - Half Price Books Blog - HPB.com. I've read the majority of these books. I suppose that makes me a bookworm...
Top School Required Reading You Didn't Hate - honestly, I did hate some of these, but there are some favorites on here too. Looking for a good way to convince my students to follow their own tastes instead of just reading what their friends like--maybe a personalized "didn't hate it" list?
Top School Required Reading You Didn't Hate - I've read most of these! I hardly ever find that in these lists.
Top School Required Reading You Didn't Hate< though i a bunch of these i never read for school...
Top School Required Reading You Didn't Hate. Books that spring quickly to mind are William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, John Knowles’ A Separate Peace & Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, 3 books I would be happy to never see again. Not all required reading makes you question the sanity of your English teacher. So, we asked you what were the books on your required reading list that you enjoyed? Liked? Tolerated? Didn’t throw across the room in a fit of frustration & boredom?
Top School Required Reading You Didn't Hate...not all of them but some are good choices!

Sharp Objects: A Novel by Gillian Flynn, http://www.amazon.com/dp/0307341550/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_8Vcrtb11ZDPPP - Better than Gone Girl! Very dark, with a great ending.
Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town.Amazon.com: Sharp Objects: A Novel (9780307341556): Gillian Flynn: Books
"To say this is a terrific debut novel is really too mild. I haven't read such a relentlessly creepy family saga since John Farris's All Heads Turn as the Hunt Goes By, and that was thirty years ago, give or take. Sharp Objects isn't one of those scare-and-retreat books; its effect is cumulative. I found myself dreading the last thirty pages or so but was helpless to stop turning them." – Stephen King ~Ainsley #gillianflynn #thriller #fiction

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher - Clay Jensen receives a box of cassette tapes recorded by his late classmate Hannah Baker, in which she lists her reasons for taking her own life.
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. (2007) http://alpha2.suffolk.lib.ny.us/record=b3967802~S35
13 reasons why... One of my favorite books for a few years now! Read it at least 10 times
Book #32 of 2014 - Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher / YA / Young Adult Novel / Suicide
I initially read Thirteen Reasons Why because my English teacher had been going off about it. He said that Jay Asher was coming to town (he went to all fifty states, I think), and any student of his who read Thirteen Reasons Why would be allowed to go on a field trip to listen to him speak. In the end, he went without all of us. Still a spectacular read, though. Raw and real. It's sad, bittersweet at points, but Clay's narrative through it all keeps us from sinking into the despair that comes with Hannah's side of the story -- the story of her suicide. Would definitely recommend.
ThirteenReasonsWhy, this is a good book. Really sad though..
Thirteen Reasons Why, One of my favorite books!!
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher (inspiring!)

To Kill a Mockingbird: Harper Lee - One of my all time favorite books and movie adaptations, and I get something out of it with each reading. This is storytelling in rare form; Lessons are scarce in today's reality TV atmosphere. This is a book that will help you escape.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee - Not my favorite book but absolutely necessary to read since there are so many references to it in our culture.
To Kill a Mockingbird Book | Harper Lee- My all time favorite book ever. So in love. My book has this cover too 💗
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee - still my all time favorite book. I read this for the first time in 6 grade. I fell in love with it and credit it for my passion for books. #ThriftBooksSchoolClassics
To Kill a Mockingbird: Harper Lee - One of my all time favorite books of al time. A BEAUTIFUL piece of literature, with a serious life lessons I still carry around.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee ~ one of my favourite books in high school. I love this cover!
Neighbors bring food with death and flowers with sickness and little things in between. Boo was our neighbor. He gave us two soap dolls, a broken watch and chain, a pair of good-luck pennies, and our lives. But neighbors give in return. We never put back into the tree what we took out of it: we had given him nothing, and it made me sad. (harper lee, to kill a mockingbird)- This is one of my favorite books I read in high school. :)

Speak, by Laurie Halse Anderson. Hands down my favorite book of all time, and a must read for anyone who is, will be, or was in high school
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. A Printz Honor book, National Book Award Finalist, and one that's made the top 100 on the ALA Banned Books list in the past 10 years. A wonderful read for teens w/ a postive message. Deals with sexual assault and the pain/depression that accompanies it, but ultimately, teaches girls to stand up for themselves. And the book is an awesome book.
I read this when I was a freshman in high school, for my English class. I still remember this story, wow so powerful!

Melinda, a nice, average middle-schooler, becomes an outcast just before she begins her first year in high school.

But Melinda's sudden change of personality, and her equally sudden break with her oldest and best friend, have a very simple, though secret, explanation.

"The thing is, you can get used to anything. You think you can't, you want to die, but you don't. You won't. You just are". Living dead girl, Elizabeth Scott
"Living Dead Girl" by Elizabeth Scott. One of the most disturbing and heart wrenching books I have ever read. I literally cried the whole way through. Not my taste, but I included it anyway, beacause I have to admitt, you get why your parents worry so much about you and the bad in this world after reading this. And if you plan on having kids you'll worry about them too one day. Horrifying story.

Worth Reading, The Outsiders, Young Adult, Books Worth, Movie, Favorite Books
The Outsiders - S.E. Hilton This is one of the best books I have ever read, and I -highly- recommend it. The audience for this book is targeted more at teens and young adults. For being a book of modern American literature, it is a clean, well written story. It makes you rethink in a way the social standards of today and what we say really can affect somebody.
The Outsiders, this was my favorite book (and movie) as a jr high kid. I completely fell in love with each & every character.
4.5 stars ==> #25 of 50 = "The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton (180p). So fun to read this classic novel for my book club. I wouldn't have picked it up otherwise and it was a great story. I want to see the 1983 movie with all kinds of stars in it! (Patrick Swayze, Dianne Lane, Rob Lowe, etc.)
The Outsiders. Middle School students LOVE THIS book. Fun facts: 1. SE Hinton is a girl. 2. She wrote the book when she was 16. 3. The story takes place in Tulsa, even though it's about gangs in a big city. 4. SE Hinton makes a cameo in "The Outsiders" movie as the nurse. 5. When my 8th graders ask if they can sharpen their pencils, I say, "Do it for Johnny!" 6. Stay Gold.
The Outsiders - I remember reading this in school then watching the movie. One of my favorite books, ever...Stay gold.
The Outsiders (ahh, loved this book as a kid! "When I stepped out into the bright sunlight from the darkness of the movie house, I had only two things on my mind: Paul Newman and a ride home.")
The Outsiders -- This is probably by far my favorite book I read in middle school. The storytelling, the characters, and the themes of the book provided a great reading experience. As cliche as it may be, I think this would be an ideal book to read with students (as a teacher). I've seen the movie and although it has what one might call an "all-star" cast, the book was so much better.

My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult. Book is awesome! I refuse to see the movie because I've been told it ends different than the book & the book ending is what made it such a great story! Cried my eyes out!
My Sisters Keeper is one of my Favorite books, the movie is good but as usual the book and the movie are A LOT different. It's a must read!!
My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult (2003) This is my all time favorite. If you thought the movie was good wait till you read the book.. I read it in 3 days and it had me in tears the whole tome..
My Sister's Keeper ~ This or any Jodi Picoult book is worth reading...
