One pinner said 'One of those novels that kept me up at night. Because it is about an event that occurs far too often in today's society. A book for parents to read as well.' I want to read this really bad so this helps me make up my mind to buy it :)

There is not a book Laurie Halse Anderson has written that I haven't loved. She is a gifted story teller. This is a must read for anyone in later middle school/ninth grade. Every teenage boy and girl should read this book and get the message that No means No. Powerful story.
THE CHOSEN ONE by Carol Lynch Williams. A teen girl is forced to marry the elder of her Mormon compound. But she has other ideas. This is the first modern young adult book that I read when I switched to writing YA. Great story. THE CHOSEN ONE opened my eyes to the almost limitless possibilities of the YA genre.
