The Line, by Teri Hall

(Comes out March 4th, 2010)



An invisible, uncrossable physical barrier encloses the Unified States. The Line is the part of the border that lopped off part of the country, dooming the inhabitants to an unknown fate when the enemy used a banned weapon. It’s said that bizarre creatures and superhumans live on the other side, in Away. Nobody except tough old Ms. Moore would ever live next to the Line.

Nobody but Rachel and her mother, who went to live there after Rachel’s dad died in the last war. It’s a safe, quiet life. Until Rachel finds a mysterious recorded message that can only have come from Away. The voice is asking for help.

Who sent the message? Why is her mother so protective? And to what lengths is Rachel willing to go in order to do what she thinks is right?

One of the Harry Potter books. I love them.

I also like "A Tree Grows in Brookline"

Or maybe a Dan Brown book?

I suggest reading "I am the Cheese" by Robert Cormier, it was an amazing book, not gender specific. It was a book that played with your mind a little, sort of like The Giver.

Kissed by an Angel by Elizabeth Chandler, along with Avalon High by Meg Cabot were perhaps the fastest books I've read in my life. They kept me reading and drove me absolutely insane. I highly recommend them. :) !

I changed my mind and decided that the best book I could suggest is Mara, Daughter of the Nile

written by: Eloise Jarvis McGraw

It's really good, well written, exciting, and it's not too long, set in Ancient Egypt. The main character, Mara, is a blue-eyed slave, fluent and literate in Egyptian and Babylonian, who ends up being a double agent for two people who want two different people to be Pharaoh.

The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen















Summary



In The Truth About Forever, when asked how she is coping with her father's death, invariably seventeen year old Macy Queen's answer is "fine," when nothing could be further from the truth. In actuality, she is drowning in grief while maintaining a flawless fa├žade of good grades and unblemished behavior. Though she feels lost when her boyfriend heads to "Brain Camp" for the summer, she finds herself a job with the quirky Wish Catering crew, and meets "sa-woon"-worthy Wes, whose chaotic lifestyle is in direct opposition to her own. As the two share their stories over the summer, Macy realizes she can no longer keep her feelings on ice. Though it feels like her future endedwith her dad's death, Macy's learns that forever is all about beginnings. Dessen charts Macy's navigation of grief in such an honest way it will touch every reader who meets her. All of the Dessen trademarks are here: a girl in transition, a wonderfully fleshed out cast of secondary characters, and of course, the luminous, powerful writing itself. The Truth About Forever will more than satisfy Dessen's legion of fans, and will win her countless more as well.

I second this choice! I'm 16 and I think The Hinger Games & Catching Fire are incredible! Kinda twisted but still fantastic

The Road, by Cormac McCarthy. It's a book that takes place in post-appocoliptic America, about a man and his son. Lovely story, and beautifully written.

Pride and Prejudice--Jane Austen I haven't read it yet, but it is supposedly fantastic and a very good book for conversation.  From what I heard, there isn't "inappropriate" material in it so it should be good there

Book Thief by Marcus Zuszak

The story of a young girl growing up in Hitler Germany, told in "Death"'s perspective.

This is possibly my favorite book of all time along with Zuszak's other novel, "I am the Messenger."  "The Book Thief" is a story of growing up, finding love, and surviving.  LOVE THIS BOOK!
