That book is so sad. I read it in my English class last year.

But I would say, the Private Series. Or Twighlight, of course. I don't remember who they are by though ...

"The Other Boleyn Gir" and the sequel, "The Boleyn Inheritance". They're both amazing.

Anything by Kevin O'Brien, but I really think that Make Them Cry might be my favorite by him.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey. I love love love love that book. I like it better than most other "classic" novels (the kind you read in grade 12 at least)
