Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I don't think anybody has mentioned the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series by Louise Rennison! They are probably the funniest books I've ever read. I am also a huge fan of Sarah Dessen and Julie Anne Peters.

Twilight- Stephanie Meyer
Cut- Patricia McCormick


I can't stress enough about how amazing these two books are. I heard they are coming out with the Twilight movie in December 2008. I'm so excited!

I have a few that some people might like to read. (=
Not all of them are specifically FOR teenage girls, but whatever. They're good books that I think anybody could like.

Firstly, I am DISGUSTED that nobody has suggested anything by Scott Westerfeld!
The Uglies trilogy (well, now that's there's Extras, it can't really be called a trilogy) is amazing. Unfortunately, the writing isn't too fabulous, but the concept is just perfection, and it really makes you think. Those books changed my life.
Also... Peeps and The Last Days, by Scott Westerfeld again. Peeps is basically just a vampire book for science geeks. I really truly loved this book, because it made the idea of vampires BELIEVABLE. There was a method to the madness. The Last Days is slightly different, but still an extremely good book.
Once again by Westerfeld, we have the Midnighters series. Extremely hard to explain, but also extremely good books.
And there's also So Yesterday, same author... I haven't read this one in a while, so I don't remember much about it, but from what I do remember, aside from being rather amusing, it wasn't such a great book.

Now. Kevin Brooks. LOVE.
Firstly, we have Candy. Such a good book. It's basically about heroin addict/prostitute, so I wouldn't recommend it to younger teens. I did read it when I was eleven... But maybe that's why I'm as messed up as I am now. XD

Some others by Brooks that I've read and enjoyed are...
Lucas, Kissing the Rain, and The Road of the Dead. They're all very well written and... Interesting. And just a little bit morbid. A lot morbid. XD

And then, by Walter Sorrells, The Silent Room. Once again, rather disturbing and morbid, and not very well written. That's not the point though. The concept of the book, the ideas in it, are so... Realistic, in a way, but at the same time, if anybody was caught doing some of the things in the book, they would be shipped off to die in the middle of the ocean because they're a danger to the rest of the world. XD That book makes me cry and laugh every time I read it, though, so I'd certainly recommend it. Then again, it is CERTAINLY not for everbody. Hard to explain.

Ellen Hopkins is a genius, too. Burned, Glass, Crank, and Impluse are four of my favorite books in this entire world. Once again, not for younger teens.

Listening At the Gate by Betsy James is another favorite of mine. Sooo sad, but so incredibly interesting and well thought out. Also by Besty James, there's Long Night Dance and Dark Heart. Those two actually come before Listening At the Gate, but it's perfectly fine to read it by itself.

My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult is seriously my favorite book in the entire world. Maybe I only love it because it combines two of the things in this world that I am SO interested in (law and... cancer. XD), but it really truly is an amazing book, and if it doesn't make you cry, you are a cold, heartless person.

I've got to go to dance right now, and I've run out of books, but I'm sure I have a billion more that I might add at a later time. (=

-Wicked
-etc etc. I love reading.

Hey Guys,
I just finished my new favorite book this morning. It's called **Ana'a Story** by Jenna Bush. Don't turn away from the book because it's by the dreaded man's daughter. It's a graet book and i would recomend it to anyone. It's based on a true story about a girl Jenna Bush met while working with UNICEF. You won't regret reading this book. It's great.

Mao's Last Dancer

Little Fearless

A ton of people have already said how great Sarah Dessen is, but I just had to add. She is, hands down, my favorite author and I haven't read a single book of hers that I don't like. The Truth About Forever was my personal favorite.

My bestfriend also swears by The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books.

Hi

Jacqueline Wilson's teen books are a really good read. I aren't really into books but hers are really good. KISS would have to be my favourite

a good read

I personally don't like the idea of "teen" books because it makes me feel as if we're not really capable of understanding "adult" books.

I mean, I read Sense and Sensibility a while back, and a teacher of mine told me that it was "too advanced" for me. Just, no.

Anyways, I'm here to make a list. They're not just "teen" books or anything like that; some of them are more "difficult" reads, meaning that they contain some hard-to-understand concepts. For a lot of people.

-Night by Elie Wiesel.
-The Pianist by Wladislaw Szpilman.
-Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen.
-"The Queen of Spades" by Aleksandr Pushkin.
-La Dame aux Camellias by Alexander Dumas, fils. A play, of course, but I just loved it. The emotion is there, and you can just feel it.
-"Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?" by Joyce Carol Oates. It's got a rather strange ending, but it's chilling and actually quite interesting.
-Prozac Nation by Elizabeth Wurtzel. It's a memoir about Ms. Wurtzel's fight with depression and multiple suicide attempts.

So I know people have probably already mentioned some/most of these books but:

*The Clique book by Lisi Harrison
*Non-Blonde Cheerleader books by Keiran Scott
*Princess Diaries books by Meg Cabot
*Any book by S.E. Hinton ("The Outsiders", "That was then,this is now", "Rumble Fish"...)- even though they are all from male points of view they are written by a female and AMAZING

The Twilight series is amazing - so addictive and beautifully written.
I also like Meg Cabot's books such as Avalon High and The All American Girl.

The Jacqueline Wilson books are great for younger teens.

Some of these have already been said but these are some of my favourite teen books:
Harry Potter Series- J.K.Rowling
Twilight Saga-Stephanie Meyer
His Dark Materials triology- Phillip Pullman
Gossip Girl-Cecily von Zieswager (also the it girl series but not as good in my opinion)
Private Series-Kate Brian
Diary of a Crush Trilogy- Sarah Manning
Hard Cash/ Shacked Up / Speeding It-Kate Cann

* Edit- also Roll of Thunder, Hear my Cry, Let The Circle Be Unbroken and The Road to Memphis- Mildred D. Taylor

*How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls
*All Meg Cabot books
*I'd Tell You I Love You But Then I'd Have to Kill You, Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy, Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover (All by Ally Carter)
