    Identical-Kaeleigh and Raeanne are 16-year-old identical twins, the daughters of a district court judge father and politician mother running for US Congress. Everything on the surface seems fine, but underneath run very deep and damaging secrets. When the girls were 9, Daddy started to turn to his beloved Kaeleigh in ways a father never should and has been sexually abusing her for years. For Raeanne, she needs to numb the pain of not being Daddy's favorite; for Kaeleigh, she wants to do everything she can to feel something normal, even if it means cutting herself and vomiting after every binge.

    How Kaeleigh and Raeanne figure out just what it means to be whole again when their entire world has been torn to shreds is the guts and heart of this powerful, disturbing, and utterly remarkable book. ellen hopkins

    I'm 19, most of these I read in the last few years ^^

    For fantasy:

    Diana Wynne Jones, Garth Nix and Charles De Lint.

    The Abhorsen Trilogy by Garth Nix contains romance and is one of my favourites.

    Conrad's Fate by Diana Wynne Jones, not sure how to describe it. Fantasy, family relationships, mystery and a touch of horror - though not really-.

    Howl's Moving Castle by Dianna Wynne Jones has romance and a beautiful one at that. The movie based off of it has almost nothing to do with the story in the boo which was strange.

    Charles De Lint writes urban fantasy... I'd say try The Blue Girl. It's and urban fantasy with ghosts and fairies, the main character is a teenage girl that just moved to the city that he usually write short stories about but this one is a novel.

    I'm mostly into fantasy ^^.

    I also like hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy, the trilogy of four (I don't like the fifth one) but I'm told that it's that most people find it too British. It's comedy science fiction.

    The Shack - starting to read it its about this guy who loses everything and finds a shack out in the middle of nowhere with two interesting characters that live there

    Catcher in the Rye - A teen named Holden Caulfield is fed up with all the people he lives around so he decides to spend 3 days by himself in new york city.

    Maximum Ride is one of the best series i have ever read. James Patterson, one of the best authors out there, wrote this book. Its about some kids who have had bird DNA geneticly grafted into their human DNA, giving them the ability to fly. The kids escaped from a horible facility called the school where crazed scientists preform mix and match experiments on DNA grafting. The only problem is that they are being chased by people who have had wolf DNA grafted into them. These people work for the scientists who dont want this secret to go public. The main character, Max, has whit that makes me crack up. Also in the series a little romance is thrown in between two characters. One of my all time favorite books! (And they're making a movie!!!!)

    for 15 hours your gonna want a book series. you should try those books that are written in IM form. they sound stupid but the minute you read the first page.. your hooked and you cant put it down. there are 3 books.. TTYL, TTFN, and L8R G8R they are wicked good. and they are also about teenage girls going through what teenage girls do. from moving,to boy saying no to drugs and dealing with parents and periods. these books will leave you amazed.

    another series are the..eleven,twelve,thirteen,fourteen,and fifteen books. they are about a girl.. that in the book eleven, is eleven yrs old and in the book twelve, is 12 yrs old. i think they go up to 15 and they go through everything that a teenage girl goes through at these ages, boys,periods,makeup,bras,friend troubles,sex vacation. it wont let you put the books down!! i hope i helped. even if you dont read these on the plane, you should read them sometime. especially if you are a teenager you will love them!

    Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte - it's classic! It follows the twisted romance between Cathy and Heathcliff; it is a bit dark, but wonderfully written.

    The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon - it's written in the first person by an autistic boy named Christopher. It chronicles his discoveries and emotion progression. It's beautiful.

    Well, those are two of my favorites!

    The Frog Princess by E.D. Baker

    This book is so sweet and funny. It will make you laugh and has GREAT descriptions and is wonderful to read. Better than Twilight in my opinion.

    Or At the Sign of the Sugared Plum

    I can't remember who wrote it, but it is delightful.
