    Kevin Brooks is my favorite, all realistic, ALA books.

    Candy and Road of the dead are great!

    He is kinda like Patricia.

    I never promised you a rose garden is good.

    Go Ask Alice

    The Gospel According to Larry

    The Host

    Tiger Eyes

    Anything by Mary Higgins Clark.

    OOOOHHHH I forgot, I just read a book called Willow and it was kinda like Cut, it ade me cry, like, seriously, read it, the porr girl and aaww!!

    Airhead series by Meg Cabot

    Pretty much anything by Sarah Dessen except That Summer

    Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld.

    Two-Way Street and Watch Me by Lauren Barnholdt

    Shiver and the sequel Linger by Maggie Stiefvater

    Kinda corny and stuff but the L.A. Candy books by Lauren Corad are okay.

    The writing in some of these books aren't the greatest, but I'm 17 and I get hooked by them.

    Meg Cabot has so many good books for teens, here are the bests : Airhead series, Princess Diary series, The Mediator series. Teen Idol.

    If you like fantasy, you could read Eragon series.

    Oh, and read the series of Ghostgirl by Tonya Harley, it's not a scary story, I really enjoy reading that :)

    PS: If you like true stories, read the Chicken Soup. I like the stories there :D

    You could try the Nightworld Series. It has three mini books in each book. It DOES include vampires but not as stupid as Twilight. Like one of the stories has a chick who has cancer and she's saved by a vampire. Lol. But it was witches and shapeshifting stories. OH! That just brought to mind, "wake" and "fade." Fairies. Hehe.

    i love The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han.

    it makes me feel as if I'm in the book, standing beside the main character and feeling what she's going through.

    you should check it out!
