How to Read Shakespeare Like a Professor—for Kids by Thomas C. Foster
Somehow Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman combine the serious subject of cancer with the humor of well-meaning, hormonal teenagers that results in a feel-good book that is better than the sum of it's parts.
For all those teens out there that are tired of vampires and dystopian angst- or who just want a break from it." ~Jocelyn, one of our most knowledgeable Children's section staffers
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
"Even with many many awards to it's credit, I hesitated to read The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I am a wimp when it comes to violence....My 16 year old son is the one who recommended it, which is what pushed me over the edge....The Book Thief expertly tells a tale of love and support in an
ugly racist time. I would never have believed I could be so touched by a
fictional Young Adult book about Nazi Germany, but I was. I am grateful
to Zusak for writing this book. His characters were captivating. Since I
don't have Zusak's magic touch with words, I think you should judge
for yourself if it is the book for you or your teen." ~Jocelyn
