    1. Harry Potter is an obvious choice. If you haven't read them yet, you really, really should.

    2. The Immortal Secrets of Nicholas Flamel

    3. The Mediator series

    4. Work in the Glory

    5. City of Ember - the first was good, but I wasn't a big fan of the others

    6. Children of the Promise

    7. So You Want to Be a Wizard? - Kind of slow going, but good.

    8. Inheritance cycle (Eragon)

    I'm gonna be a freshman too, and I have a couple books you definitely have to read!

    First and foremost, the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare is a must-read. It's a trilogy - City of Bones, City of Ashes and City of Glass.

    The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It's amazing, and is now onw of my favorite books. It's the first in a series set in post-apocalyptic North America, and kind of addicting.

    Lastly, Graceling by Kristen Cashore is really great. You should look into that one.

    Good luck and happy reading!

    I always liked the Clique series, but they're kind of an easy read (I flew through them in 7th grade). Harry Potter's always a good read. Try looking in the young adult section of the library.(:
