Good Books Please..? (Read Description, and I'm only 13 so no graunchy stuff)?
Hey. I love to read but I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT SOME GOOD BOOKS ARE!!!!
Things I am interested in are:
Romance (Yeah, sex is okay but not like ever chapter is BANG BANG BANG..... BANG.... OH DANG LETS BANG)
Action sort of. Like I read the Outsiders and I LOVED IT..But not like BAM WAM POW....DEAD..
I am not a huge fan on mystery, so PLEASE NO NANCY DREW OR BOX CAR KIDS (EW)
I AM MOST DEFINATLY NOT INTO WITCHES AND WARLOCKS AND ALL THAT!!
I am always up for new kinds of books. Not please, no magic or mystery...

Here are some books that I would have to suggest:
The hunger games, by suzanne collins
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series (really, really good :D)
All American Girl by Meg Cabot (once again, truly amazing)
Airhead by Meg Cabot
The Clique series
The Maxium Ride series
And if you want to give fantasy a try, I would suggest the Percy Jackson series
Hope this helps!!!

Dangerous Days: The Autobiography of a Photojournalist, and its sequel, Blades: The Autobiography of a Rescue-Helicopter Pilot, both by J. William Turner. Very realistic fiction about teens in several dramatic life and death situations set in Australia, Canada, England and California during the years 1981-1982 and 1995-2001. Each is written as a series of four related shorter books (about 100 pages per book) inside a single cover dealing with teenage, adult and social themes. No sex scenes or cussing. More info in Google

Percy Jackson and the Olympians

It you can afford $3 - go to Smashwords.com and look at The Long Way Home. It's written for teens - no vampires, no magic, no shoot-em-ups, but lots of action and adventure. I think you will like it.

Anything by author Judith Gest , they are kind of adult but you sound like you are ahead of your age , and when I mean adult I do not mean porn . I hope this peaks your interest .
