I agree with John Marsden, Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, Anne of Green Gables and Diary of Anne Frank but am astounded at the general lack of classics! What about Susan Coolidge (What Katy Did), Little Women, Bronte sisters and the very many young woman orientated classics out there?

But if classics aren't your thing then 'Looking for Alibrandi' is amazing too. Forget the movie, this book is about personal and cultural identity, boys, first boyfriends, losing virginity, friendships, mother-daughter relationaships, sepeerated parents and a whole bunch of big issues. And it's frickin' hilarious too! Also by Melina Marchetta is 'Saving Franchesca' which cover similiar issues on sex, friends, boys, etc, but also a lot about depression and self discovery. And is also extremely humourous.

I repeat: READ LOOKING FOR ALIBRANDI!!!

Two teen books I like are
-Kissed by an Angel (collecters edition trilogy) by Elizabeth Chandler

-Don't Let Me Die! by Kindsay Cladwell

I read both of those books a couple years ago but I really liked them.



Two other books I really enjoyed were
-Where The Heart Is by Billie Letts

-White Oleander by Janet Fitch


They are girl books but not as much teen books. Pre teens or Teens who only enjoy light hearted books wouldnt enjoy these as much. But definatly my 2 favorites!!!

Here's another-
How the light gets in- M.J Hyland

I haven't read it yet but it sounds invigorating! Apparently the protagonist shares similar traits with Holden Caufield...yes i'm a Catcher fan!!!!

Go Ask Alice was NOT a real diary.
It was written by a middle aged woman doctor.
There was no Alice.

I know this because I worked in a public library and I was shelving the books. The librarians were laughing because I shelved Go Ask Alice in the biography section. They told me it goes in Young Adult Fiction because it IS fiction and then they told me who wrote it. The author is listed, but as the editor. Her name is Beatrice Sparks. She was a middle aged woman that wrote a few books for teenagers.
I promise this is what I was told by the librarians!

Anything by: Lurene McDaniel,Sharon Creech (I can't believe nobody mentioned her...An especially good teen girl book by her is Bloomability),Caroline B. Cooney are bound to be good reads!Also,the Beatrice Sparks books Jay's Journal,and It Happned to Nancy are totally awesome!

On the note of Beatrice Sparks:Here is an interesting article that I found- www.shutitdown.net . . .

If you want a relaxing little fantasy try some of the Beverly Cleary books for older readers. My favourite is "The Luckiest Girl" while "Jean and Johnny" was also quite good. Others include "Fifteen" and "Sister of the Bride"
They are definitly not an advanced reading level, but the are quite entertaining!

I love Catcher in the Rye! Who cares if it's about a guy, it's more about being an almost-adult. White Oleander is very good, but I wouldn't consider that a teenage book. It's not exactly bubblegum. Also, Speak and Catalyst are very good and very fast reads.

I would totally agree with everything, but would also add the Lioness series by Tamora Pierce. Sure it is very much a fanasy, but being a girl in a mgical kingdom is the same as being a girl now. I definitely related to the main character, and the books were super good.

I also really enjoyed little Women, and I cried literally the hole time I read it. And another one of my favorites, The Giver by Lois Lowry. It is incredibly written, and the other books in the series, Gathering Blue and The MEssanger, are very good indeed.

Somebody recommended the book "Gingerbread" and also the Geogia Nicholson series that starts with "Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging." And I love the Gossip Girl series.

None of them really have any sentimental value or morals. Gingerbread has some sentiment-osity to it as the main character learns a few lessons and opens up to her parents. The others are just for fun. :D
