i found this list that Canadian Living created and each book has a little blub and why they think it's important for teens to read it. a handful of the books i read in school (Lord of the Flies, the Outsiders, Animal Farm etc) and a couple others outside of school but there many i had never even heard of. i immediately requested Go Ask Alice, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and The Island of Dr. Moreau. and eventually, i should really read Are You There God? It's Me Margaret. i never have. check out the list - any of your favs there?
