The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. This is such a great book, especially for teens. The movie is definitely one of my favorite adaptations.
This is one of my favorite books. I just reread it because it was made into a movie. The movie was very good as well. It was written, directed, and produced by the author of the book. Worth seeing and reading.

“There is nothing so patient, in this world or any other, as a virus searching for a host.” Feed (Newsflesh, #1), Mira Grant. Pinner writes: "Excellent spin on the zombie apocalypse. The plague is unwittingly manufactured by different scientists creating separate, & otherwise wholly effective, cures for cancer & the common cold. When they come together they create ZOMBIES. Told by appealing news bloggers as they race to learn the horrifying truth. For anyone willing to scare themselves silly."
The NewsFlesh trilogy. Definitely worth reading!
Mira Grant - Feed (Newsflesh, #1) In 2014, two experimental viruses escaped the lab and combined to form a single airborne pathogen that swept around the world in a matter of days. It cured cancer. It stopped a thousand cold and flu viruses in their tracks. It raised the dead. Millions died in the chaos that followed. Set twenty years after the Rising, the Newsflesh trilogy follows a team of bloggers, led by Georgia and Shaun Mason, as they search for the brutal truths behind the infection.)
Today’s Kindle SciFi/Fantasy Daily Deal is Feed ($1.99), the first novel in the Newsflesh Trilogy by Mira Grant [Orbit], with the companion audiobook for $5.49. As one reviewer said, it’s not really a zombie book (although there are zombies). Definitely recommended, we had to buy the entire series after being introduced to the series during the Hugo Awards a couple of years ago (and each volume in the series has received a Hugo nomination).

NeilGaiman: The Graveyard Book
The Graveyard Book Ala Notable Children's Books. Middle Readers: Amazon.de: Neil Gaiman, Dave McKean: Fremdsprachige Bücher
The Graveyard Book : Neil Gaiman, Dave McKean - Its a good book for young adults or adults, but I definitely wouldn't read it to kids. It is a story about a young boy whose family is murdered, so he is raised by the ghost in a graveyard. Fun as a ghost story as well as the story of a boy figuring out the world as he grows up.
