The Rideau Heights Teen Advisory Group presents a list of must-read books to cozy up with over March Break. With a mix of old and new books and everything from sci-fi to romance, this list surely has something for everyone!
Jazmin loved this book because of the mysterious story line. "A new secret was unlocked every chapter and it left me wanting to read until the very end".
Leilani really enjoyed this series because it was filled with adventure and always leaves you wanting to read more. She has read several book series and this one is "so different, but in the best possible way".
Megan notes that reading "To Kill a Mockingbird" helped her to more intimately understand some important themes like racism, and prejudice but also love and friendship. The book is filled with loveable characters and it comes with her highest recommendation.
Megan also recommends this quick, easy and interesting read. She says, "I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did, but because of the engaging main characters and complicated relationships, I quickly fell in love."
Lucca is currently reading this book and loves it thus far! The book details the emotional and physical struggles of Grady, a trans-gendered high school student, who is adjusting to his new identity as a male.
Megan is currently reading this title and loves the plot. The main character has Purely-Obsessional OCD and is stuck pretending to be someone she is not to please her cruel friends. To cope with her mental illness, she discovers poetry, a group of new friend, and herself — until she finds a new reason to question it all.
Leilani loved the excitement and adventure of the mini-mysteries throughout this book. “It really keeps you on the edge of your chair!”
Lucca highly recommends this perfect dystopian mix of romance, sci-fi and horror. Megan adds, "It’s just like Twilight . . . but with aliens!"
If you’re avoiding reading this for school, procrastinate no longer! Jazmin loved this title and thinks you will too. The novel is set in a dystopian society (like many recent popular teen fiction titles) and she loved the adventurous plot.
