Please Don't Kill the Freshman: A Memoir by Zoe Trope
Please Don't Kill the Freshman: A Memoir

PDXRadReader, May 28, 2007

I've heard this is on the reading list at some high schools -- a good idea if we want to inspire young adult readers. It's real, it's creative, it's edgy and urban -- it's something a young person can identify with, or if not, would be curious about.

Like The Catcher in the Rye of today.

Bad Tickets by Kathleen Odell
Bad Tickets

PDXRadReader, May 28, 2007

Here's a YA book about growing up in Portland, Oregon during the Summer of Love. For the price of a bus ticket, a teenage girl could transport herself from the conservative, working class suburbs of east Multnomah County and check out a whole new world on the other side of town. This is a fun book for Portlanders -- both those who were there and those who weren't born yet.
