The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. Loved this in high school and the movie actually looks decent.
Very good book, soon to be ruined in a movie.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky - My favorite book at the moment. Everything about it to me, was just a 100% great book.
stephen chbosky's "the perks of being a wallflower" is a book that has inspired me greatly. even though i've been out of high school for quite a few years now, it's still relatable today. definitely worth reading.
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.

I read this book and its a very teen book
Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler, Maira Kalman (Illst) Min Green and Ed Slaterton are breaking up, so Min is writing Ed a letter and giving him a box which contains the reasons why they broke up. Two bottle caps, a movie ticket, a folded note, a box of matches, a protractor, books, a toy truck, a pair of ugly earrings, a comb from a motel room, and every other item collected over the course of a giddy, intimate, heartbreaking relationship. Reading 3/13
Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler, Maira Kalman (Illustrator) #breakups
Why We Broke Up, a novel written by Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket) and illustrated by Maira Kalman..."Handler and Kalman (13 Words) craft a book-length breakup letter from Min (short for Minerva) to her ex-boyfriend, Ed. Halfway through Min’s impassioned epistle, readers may realize that Ed, even if he cares, lacks the wherewithal to read it—lending real pathos to Min’s memorabilia and making her sorrow all the more palpable."

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.
