    I like the same kind of stories. You may enjoy: The Kane Cronicles by Rick Riordan, You don't know Me by David Klass, The Heroes of Olympus series also by Rick Riordan if you haven't already. It's a continuation of the original Percy Jackson Series. Umm I'm also writing a book about greek mythology and demigods if you ever want to give it a look just email me and I'll send you a free copy of what I have so far. Good luck :-)

    The Gemma Doyle trilogy by using Libba Bray. i actually enjoyed those books. they are fantasy, and not "fluffy" or gentle-hearted in any respect. The characters are super, and that i admire the way it is set in the Victorian era, that's distinctive. This trilogy is rather unique, and it is one in all my favorites. the 1st e book, a brilliant and undesirable splendor, could be perplexing to get into, whether it truly options up after a on a similar time as. Leslie's magazine by using Allan Stratten. it truly is a few youthful woman who's coping with family contributors problems and friendship drama, so she's extremely joyful while an older boy needs to bypass out along with her. yet, the relationship truthfully has problems. This e book bargains with divorce, abuse and medicines, and it is important. The e book Thief by using Markus Zusak. it truly is probably not what you asked for, whether it is this variety of solid e book. it is magnificent and surprising, and it is unique in that it is narrated by using dying. It happens in nazi Germany, whether it is greater on the subject of the existence of a youthful woman, Liesel, than that's on the subject of the holocaust or conflict. someplace else by using Gabrielle Zevin. it truly is a few teen woman who dies, and then works to a place referred to as "someplace else", the place she has to regulate to her new "existence" and settle for that she's in no way going to boost previous like different women her age. I enjoyed this e book, and the existence-after-dying element is an exciting thought.

    Divergent by Veronica Roth – 2011. In a future dystopian Chicago, each 16-year old must choose to belong one of five factions, each of which represents a dominant personality trait.

    Incarceron by Catherine Fisher – 2007. Incarceron is a prison so vast that it is self-sustaining. Generations of prisoners are born inside, doomed to a life in prison. The novel weaves two story lines: that of 17-year old Finn, who hopes to become only the second person to break out of the prison, and Claudia, the warden's daughter who hopes to escape an arranged marriage. When each discovers a crystal key, they find that they can communicate through the devices, and pledge to help one another. The story lines merge in a fantastic twist you won’t see coming.

    Maze Runner by James Dashner - 2009. When Thomas arrives in the Glade, he remembers nothing but his name, just like the dozens of other teen boys who arrived before him.

    Unwind by Neal Shusterman - 2009. In post-war future, the abortion debate has been solved through compromise. Parents may elect to have their teenage children "unwound", a process where the teens organs and body parts are harvested for others. The story follows three runaway Unwinds, each discarded for behavior, religious, or economic reasons. As the trio embarks on a harrowing journey of escape, the reader will ponder very heavy moral questions, and wrestle with how much a bad decision can affect future generations. This is a masterpiece on every level!
