Definitely more character-building and less action. I find it fascinating - and very poignant - that she wrote an entire novel about hope and rebuilding after a devastating last installment. I did miss her intricate story-weaving and plot climax, but I understand this book will likely play a huge role in the next installment. And I always enjoy follow-up with some of my favorite characters.

Beachesnbooks I just finished it today and I want the next book so badly! 2y

I found this book to be a very painful read. However, I think painful reads sometimes open our minds to the reality of the world around us. In some ways I think it was so disturbing that I actually*shut off* at parts while reading it, but I don‘t regret reading it.

I was both frustrated and devastated by this. Frustrated because there were some vast over-generalizations. Devastated because, as the mother of an autistic son, I relate to so many scenarios but not to the feelings my son has. This book, written by a 13-year old autistic child, attempts to answer questions through use of an alphabet grid. It‘s a pick for me, even with its weaknesses, only because I feel I understand my son just a tad bit more.

JanuarieTimewalker13 Have you read The Age of Autism? I think I‘d like to read it. 2y
Smartypants @TrishTheBibliophile I‘m the mom of an autistic son too. I‘m always interested in reading the stories of others impacted by autism. Thanks for sharing. 2y
TrishTheBibliophile @JanuarieTimewalker13 No, I haven‘t. I will look into it. It sounds like something I may like to read. Thank you. 2y
TrishTheBibliophile @Smartypants I cried when I read how this boy always felt stupid when his parents became frustrated with him or how he often felt like a burden. He says it is hard to be autistic but “please parents, don‘t give up on us.” My son doesn‘t verbalize those thoughts but the thought of him possibly feeling that way because I get frustrated just broke my heart! 2y
JanuarieTimewalker13 You‘re welcome❤️ 2y

THIS book. So many discussion points. It‘s written in verse and documents the “plight” of a boy whose brother has just been shot. He is trying to follow the 3 rules: don‘t cry, don‘t snitch and get revenge. He ends up riding an elevator with occupants who followed these 3 rules in the past. It‘s an easy fast read for the teen crowd and paves the path for conversations we sometimes need to have about inequality and racial identity.

A plan is hatched by a young teen to record her father‘s voice during his last days and release it as a computer virus so no one will forget him. This short story of navigation through grief was heartbreaking, heartwarming, funny, sad, tender and harsh at the same time.

Hidden | Helen Frost

This book is a short novel, written in verse from two different perspectives: that of Wren, a child hiding in a car that was stolen, and Darra, the child of the thief who stole the car. It shows how their lives intertwine through the years as they end up in the same camp together as teens. We hear all about Wren‘s side - but what about Darra‘s? The truth is a hidden “message” within the verse.

A bit disjointed at times, but a firsthand look into two sides of what is going on in Syria. It is haunting as it follows the progression of war in Syria and the failed response to the war thereafter.

Help! What books do you think every high-schooler should read? I need suggestions!

See All 71 Comments
RebL I don‘t think there are must reads. 2y
goodbyefrancie All of the above suggestions are great! 2y
Librariana Great suggestion, @Ingerella! I need to read that one! 2y
LectricSheep I second Fahrenheit 451! 2y
TrishTheBibliophile @RebL I‘m not referring to forced reading. I‘m simply referring to books people believe are beneficial for high-schoolers to read. Thanks for your input! 2y
TrishTheBibliophile Wow, thank you so much everyone!! Such great (and quick) feedback! 2y
Melissa_J I see the books I‘d recommend have already been mentioned by @Librariana I‘d also add The Handmaid‘s Tale since I read it in high school and thought it was amazing. 2y
Melissa_J Also, I think The Book Thief would be a good choice for high schoolers. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa And if the haven‘t by then the entire Harry Potter Series too 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa It‘s war, conflict zones, and travel from a female photojournalist I think some would really enjoy it and the photos. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa And as our times change, I‘m betting a bunch could relate to something like 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I wish I would have read this one in HS, or middle school 2y
Gina This book created such upset about the food packing industry that Roosevelt ended up creating legislation so the food industry would stop poisoning us. 2y
Cats-and-Tea I read it in middle school and it really had a big impact on me 2y
TheBookAddict I wish I had read 2y
TheBookAddict I also agree with Fahrenheit 451, 1984, and Speak. 2y
Demanda This is more of a middle school suggestion, but 2y
The_Heeler_Booklife The Hate list and Scythe. 2y
bookcyns The Perks of Being A Wallflower 2y
Airforcesister This is also a good one to read. It‘s a classic but an easy read classic 2y
RebL I hear you, but “must read” sets up some readers for anxiety or feelings of inadequacy. It does my kid. I asked an intern what she likes to read & she was hesitant to come out & say she loves romance. We don‘t think of romance as a must read genre, but there are a ton of good ones out there—& other genres often include romance as a B story. Maybe I‘m hesitant to make a blanket statement, but would couch a recommendation based on the individual. 2y
TrishTheBibliophile @RebL Thanks! I still believe you‘re definitely misconstruing my question - or my purpose - but I appreciate your input! 2y
RebL Possibly your purpose, but it‘s not a critique of what you‘re doing. It‘s a comment on the angst of the teens I‘m working with, so... not related. I probably shouldn‘t have commented, but it‘s something I‘m trying to work out. 2y
TrishTheBibliophile @RebL no, I appreciate your input so, thank you for commenting! ❤️ 2y

Eh. Could‘ve been better, could‘ve been worse. The first 2/3 was slow, so slow. The last 1/3 was much better paced, but the ending was abrupt and rushed after all the time put into the first parts of the book. There were some fragmented parts that bothered me as well. Still a cool thing he did with his daughter, regardless.

So, I bought my son this book as he is entering “high school” (he‘s homeschooled/unschooled so it‘s kind of all relative at this point). I decided to browse through it just to see how it could be useful - and now I‘m full out reading it. I know there is one for adults but this one is quite good so far. And, even more importantly, it‘s engaging (a must for the intended audience). Anyhow....#sidetracked #stolehisbook

Definitely not one of my favorites. It felt like Haruf was trying too hard to create a social statement. It read much more like an essay than a short novel. It lacked climax in plot and it felt monotone in nature. I‘m definitely in the minority on this one.

I‘m almost done with this, and I must be in the minority because I‘m struggling to get through. Hoping the last 45 minutes of this audiobook are better than the other 2.25 hours. I mean it‘s not bad, but it‘s not earth-shattering either. On the plus side, the narrator is pleasant to listen to.

Lakshmi, a girl from Nepal, believes she is going to the city to start working as a maid, only to find out that she has actually been sold into prostitution. She narrates her journey in short verse that is both beautiful and heartbreaking.

Loved the characters in this story. Also, loved Maggie's unique approach to crafting her story (she is a genius!). However, sometimes I really struggled to pick up and finish the book because it is so slow-moving. As a series, I loved the 1st book, hated the 2nd, loved the 3rd and the 4th had a great ending but just dragged in many parts. So, it's a ⭐️⭐️⭐️ for me. Liked it, wouldn't necessarily recommend it and wouldn't read it again.

Listened to this on audio. It was good. The potential to impact teens of that age (or anyone for that matter) is worth a 5-star rating, but if I'm rating on the writing and storyline itself, it's a solid 3 stars for me. I hear the Netflix series is phenomenal but I couldn't watch the series without reading the book first. It's my rule 😂

Librariana I read this the year it was published, so I've forgotten quite a bit. Wondering if I should revisit it before watching the show on Netflix. I thought the way the author came up with the idea for the novel was pretty unique. 2y
cathysaid The Netflix series was hard for me to watch; very emotional and disturbing. I asked my students (college freshmen) their opinions and they were all over the place. However, those that read as well as watched said the book was better. 2y

TrishTheBibliophile @BeththeBookDragon it wasn't so much a problem at all. I didn't hate the book. It was decent, just not a fave for me! I think part of the problem may have been the narration. I was never entirely convinced that the narrator fit the role of Hannah and that was hard for me to reconcile in my brain. I wonder if I may have felt differently if I read it. 2y

UNPOPULAR OPINION ALERT! I have mixed feelings towards this book. Yes, it is full of philosophy and the message is a great one, but gah it is boring! I feel like the author just decided he would write a book about following your dreams while trying to disguise the message in some fable, and it just didn't translate. I pushed through, hopeful, but I found it incredibly dull. Kudos for the message, but I'd prefer it from a different venue next time.

This is 1 of my top reads of 2017!! Not only because of the intricate (read: raw and brutal) plot, but the research the author did into the lives/professions of her characters is evident and phenomenal. It gives the book a sort of believability and richness that is often missing in similar stories. Even more bonus points for addressing a topic that is so relevant to our society today, and for not being scared to address it head on. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

KathyWheeler I started reading it, but I hate Turk so much that when I got to the chapter told from his perspective, I had to put the book down. I plan on picking it up again but I have to get past how much he repulses me first. 3y
TrishTheBibliophile @KathyWheeler I COMPLETELY understand. I literally cried at the hate in some parts but appreciate that the author didn't sugarcoat the reality of some things. 3y
tpixie @KathyWheeler try to pick up again. I think you'll be glad. Turk is a jerk - but he won't be in the middle of the book as much as that 1st long part 3y

KathyWheeler @tpixie okay. I really do want to read it. 3y
Jensol77 @tpixie Turk is defiantly a jerk but once you get his background, you can understand why he gravitated to the first person who gave him some attention. Also, reading this book while nursing my 2 month old daughter, I couldn't help but to cry for Turk & Brit. I don't even want to imagine what that would be like. And the part where Ruth described the kangaroo room....just too much 😪💔 3y
tpixie @Jensol77 yes I agree about Turk. Ohh glad you read with a 2 month old and not 9 mo pregnant!! Kangaroo Room, so sad. 3y
Jensol77 @tpixie omg. I don't think I could have handled that. 3y
