The Red Tent -- a story about the only daughter of the Biblical figure Jacob and what her life might have been like; it presents a much different story than what is said about her in the Bible. Very good book.
Harper Lees To Kill A Mockingbird is timeless! A must read for those who haven't yet . . My favorite book in high school I stole the book and just bought a new one last year for the anniversary of it's being published.
I was sitting on a comfy chair alone in my living room when i read Dumbledore died. I started crying and had to set the book down for a moment. My dad walked by and saw me crying and asked what was wrong. I blubbered "Dumbledore died". He couldnt understand me so I repeated myself. He said oh someone from your book and moved on. I was so mad!
