Teen Choose Your Own Adventure Book?
Several years ago there was a series made for teens/tweens that you could choose what the character would do every once in a while and go to the page it told you to. It was not actually made by the "Choose your own adventure" people but it was the same idea. Each book in the series had a striped cover (different colors though) and a small hole/opening to see a picture through. If anyone knows the title or author of these books please let me know!! Thank you!!

My Blog: Best Books (according to me and many)
#1o: His Dark Materials series by Phillip Pullman: Young Lyra Belacqua tries to prevent kidnapped children from becoming the subject of gruesome experiments; helps Will Parry — a boy from another world — search for his father; and finds that she and Will are caught in a battle between the angelic forces of the Authority and those gathered by her rebel uncle, Lord Asriel.

#6: A Catcher in the Rye by J D. Sallinger: With the author's death, the classic novel about young Holden Caulfield's disillusionment with the adult world and its "phoniness" will only rise in popularity — and controversy, since it is a favorite target of censors, who often cite profanity and sexual references in their efforts to ban the book.

#2: The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins: In the ruins of a future North America, a young girl is picked to leave her impoverished district and travel to the decadent Capitol for a battle to the death in the savage Hunger Games.

Some possibilities-- Were the books historical? There's a new series of books called You Choose (from Capstone Press) that are "interactive history adventures" and deal with actual historical events. They're on a pretty easy reading level and are a little over 110 pages long. Some topics are: the Battle of Bunker Hill, The Battle of the Alamo, The California Gold Rush, Chinese Immigrants in America, and a few more. One of the books says it has "2 story paths, 50 choices, 16 endings." There's also a new graphic novel series - Twisted Journeys ( by Graphic Universe) that describes itself as a " graphic novel series which lets the reader create the action by choosing which plot path to follow." Some titles are: Nightmare on Zombie Island by Paul Storrie, Escape from Pyramid X by Dan Jolley, The time travel trap by Dan Jolley, The treasure of Mount Fate by Jeff Limke. Or there's Cylin Busby's series - Date Him Or Dump Him; choose your boyfriend books. Some titles: Ski trip trouble, The campfire crush, The dance dilemma. Or how about What if-- you broke all the rules? : a choose your destiny novel by Liz Ruckdeschel. "Armed with a new camcorder, Haley continues her sophomore year at Hillsdale High, as the reader's choices help her navigate a series of events that begin with a potentially disastrous New Year's Eve party and end with what could be the spring break of her dreams." Others in the series: What if-- all the boys wanted you, What if-- everyone knew your name? : a choose your destiny novel. Or..J.E. Bright's Follow Your Heart series. Your Best Friend's Boyfriend -- "The main character's boyfriend starts flirting with her, and the reader chooses how the story will progress at various points along the narrative. Also - The Trouble With Twins -- "Identical twins Jeremy and Jason are both totally gorgeous...and totally into you. Two boys sounds like twice the fun, but Jeremy and Jason want you to choose between them. What's a girl to do? The reader chooses how the story will progress at various points along the narrative." BTW, Choose Your Own Adventure books are being re-published.
