    You will love The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, by Kate DiCamillio! This book will make you laugh, cry, and just all around feel good. Beware, you'll think that the book is for babies, at first...but don't be fooled!

    Never underestimate the power of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series. These books were MADE for teenage girls!

    I could go on forever but these are some of the best:

    The Outsiders-S.E Hinton

    That was Then, This is Now-S.E Hinton

    Tuesdays With Morrie-Mitch Albom

    The Giver-Lois Lowry

    The Devil's Arithmetic-?

    Cujo-Stephen King

    Marvin K. Mooney Will you Please Go Now-Dr. Suess

    You should look up Lois Lowry, Stephen King, and S.E Hinton. They are GREAT writers.
