7 Books You Must Read


  1. Gone by Michael GrantGoneNewCoverA beautifully-written dystopian novel. Yes, it’s 558 pages, but the characters have intelligent, lovable, and realistic, relatable personalities.
    The events of the book are surprising, and it’s the kind of book that keeps you awake all night.
  2. Just One Wish by Janette Rallison4570667Annika would do anything to make her brother, who has cancer, happy. The teeny-weeny problem is that he wants a certain person to visit him. But Annika is ready to make that happen.
    The book made me both laugh and cry. Certainly a must-read.
  3. Uglies by Scott WesterfeldUglies_bookScott’s dystopian Uglies series is perfect. The characters develop greatly throughout the series. The book is definitely worth spending your time on. Oh, and gods of Egypt, every single chapter ends with a cliff-hanger!
  4. Drums, Girls & Dangerous Pie by Jordan Sonnenblick9780439755207The book is about Steven, whose younger brother is battling Cancer. It is both funny and heartbreaking. You don’t put it down until you finish it. And the prequel, After Ever After, is even funnier and sadder.
  5. The Contest by Gordon Korman214684.Sch.Everst_Bk1_0.tifThe Contest is the first book of the enthralling Everest series. It narrates the journey of the youngest expedition to ever attempt to summit Everest. I’m aware that the cover isn’t “attractive,” but hey! don’t judge a book by its cover!
  6. Wonder by R.J. PalacioWonderWonder narrates the struggle of an 11-year-old boy with a facial deformity. The characters are realistic, funny, inspiring, and their geekiness is amazing (August is obsessed with Star Wars.)
    Plus, Rick Riordan loved the book, which means that it must be on your to-read list.
  7. The Giver by Lois LowryThe-Giver
    Jonas’s community is all about order. The government controls people so that they do not feel love, do not see the colors, and live the life that is chosen for them…
    A beautiful, life-changing dystopian novel.
