So, you were a stalker from a young age.....good to know.
Ha! She was an observer of the human condition, not unlike an anthropologist. yeah, that's what it was.
I just started Lord of the Flies and it's amazing!
I love that book. I first read it when it was assigned in school, but have reread a few times.
...and scary as hell...
Glad to see someone posted Holes. That was a super fun read. Movie could not do it justice, although I would say they tried admirably. Also good is anything by Madeline L'Engle and Piers Anthony (especially A Spell For Chameleon).
how about "I Am the Cheese"? sad story
I read Holes earlier this year, or maybe late last year. I enjoyed it
That was also published under the title Escape from Warsaw, which is how I know it. Great book.
I also loved, and re-read a few years ago and still loved, My Brother Sam Is Dead, by James Lincoln Collier and Christopher Collier.
My Brother Sam is Dead :: The History of Redding's Guide to the Novel
Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book
Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game
One of the few books I read that stuck with me as a middle school student was the 'Westing Game' by Ellen Raskin. I love mysteries and that one was done very well.
It is twisted; that's exactly what I love about it.
The Pigman by Paul Zindel. Even wrote an essay about it in college.
Why not read her actual diary. It is quite real. But be sure to get the full version. Her father edited out a few thoughts about the mother he didn't like and some thoughts about her waking sexuality. If she had survived she could very well have been a good writer or journalist. I read it first in School but reread sometimes. It is an important document at the same time as it is a good read.
All seven Harry Potter books
The Nightmare Room (It might not be a book, I've seen it on the kids network)
Christopher Pike and R.L Stine, except for Goose Bumps - that's strictly geared toward people under 13.
The Fault In Our Stars is pretty popular right now.
