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 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.

    It you can afford $3 - go to 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 .
