    I'm not really into those types, although I have read Meg Cabot in the past and Sarah Dessen is very good. I like deeper books or humour, I really liked: Junkie The Perks of Being a Wallflower On The Road Naked Lunch The Hour of The Star Me Talk Pretty One Day When You Are Engulfed in Flames A Man Without a Country The Metamorphosis The Destructors(short story) Speak(This one is a bit more girly, but not at all funny) The Lovely Bones Edit: The guy that mentioned Bill Bryson is right! The one about America is the best one. It'll really make you laugh/think.

    I enjoyed the Gemma Doyle Trilogy very much! You might like reading books by Gail Carson Levine. Such as...

    Fairest,The Two Princesses of Bamarre and Ella Enchanted.

    You'll most likely love the "Mediator" series by: Meg Cabot. Totally fantastic.

    I do hope I helped some. ( ;

    inkheart - the series is very fantasy

    vampire diaries - my favourite series and i'm 13 but i have friends that are 17 that love the series

    peeeps - a "realistic" vampire book

    midnighters - kinda sci fi but no alians, space ships more of the idea

    da vinci code - maybe a bit serious for the summer but good!

    angles and demons - the new movie is meant to be awesome my friends said the book was better than the movie could ever be

    and then there were none - agatha christie; can't go wrong! i saw the movie for school - amazing! i couldn't get my hands on the book but i played the wii game, which is also really good for a book-movie-game game

    or anything by these authors

    scott westerfeld <-- some good sci fi that aren't sci fi but idk what else you would call them

    agatha christie <-- amazing mysteries

    lj smith <-- she has some really good vampire books idk if you're into that thing. but even if you hate twilight (like me) try vampire diareis

    dan brown

    stephen king <-- too many books to list!

    My favorite fantasy book is Leven Thumps. It is a great series.

    Leven Thumps is a popular children's fantasy series by writer Obert Skye. The series, projected to have five books, deals with an orphaned 14-year old boy, Leven Thumps, who becomes involved in a battle between good and evil.

    Tamora Pierce is a really good choice! I LOVE her.

    Also maybe A Wrinkle in Time or possible the House of Night series.

    Hope that helps!

    The Warrior Stone, The Dragon Stone.. etc series is really good and rly easy as well.
