Tangerine by Edward Bloor

Flawless prose-- this is a novel that can be enjoyed by both parents and adolescents together. The story explores so many issues important to adolescents: alienation, coming of age, racism, classism, stereo-types, etc.; few won't be pulled in. It does start out a little slow but stick w/ it. The plot really picks up in the end. It’s difficult to find many books aimed at this age group that equally appeal to both males and females and this one definitely does it.

The Last Book in the Universe by Rodman Philbrick

This book is an exceptional piece of writing. As a middle school English teacher I have read many young adult novels and I have to say this is one that I couldn't put down. I read it in one sitting. I am not particularly a fan of science fiction but I couldn't put this book down. My 13-year-old nephew said it's the best book he's ever read. It's a little dark for some readers so when buying for children you might want to preview it first. Adolescent girls tended to be less enthralled than the boys--but many still enjoyed it.

Excellent book! It's a light and humorous story about an adolescent boy and girl interpreting the exact same situations in their own way. The differences in point of view are hilarious. My nephew and I laughed our way through in just a few days. A good read for adolescent boys and girls.

Excellent light, humourous read for both adolescent boys and girls. It's a take on how a boy versus a girl sees the exact same situations. My nephew and I laughed our way through in just a few days. We couldn't put it down.
