The Top Ten

1
The Hunger Games
Truthfully, I read this story before the movie came out and loved it. Iread almost every story in this list (and loved the Haddix books, by the way). But no book can compare to the hunger games series. It had such great suspense and such a sad ending. It showed not every book is going to end hapily, were EVERYONE lives at the end.

The Hunger Games is a fantastic book for reading for fun and as a class book! It is great class book with all of the symbolism and other elements and its also a great book to read for fun! The Hunger Games is must read, action packed book that many readers enjoy!
I read this when I was 13 and I still can't find a better book than The hunger games. It's an adult story for preteens and the greatest one there is. I am reading Catching fire and I'm not done but it looks almost better.

Really good for teens that like.


3Among the Hidden
I read the whole series and I think this book perfectly demonstrates how harsh the world can be but helps you understand that you have to be yourself and stand up for what you believe in.
I've read the whole series! I was introduced to it in the fifth grade by my teached who really loved it
12 year old, luke as had to hide for all his life. Great book, but a little sad...

4Double Identity

Thirteen-year-old Bethany, has ALWAYS have had parents that were over protective, but when they suddenly drop out of sight with no explanation, leaving her with an aunt she never knew. A MUST READ! So good

IT IS SO AWESOME! I read it when I was 10 years old and I could not put it down! I read it is a day and I still think about it three years later!


5New Moon

Some people say that New Moon is boring, but I think it's REALLY good.


6Evermore

Really good fantasy book.


7The House on the Gulf

Really good for mystery lovers.


8Stormbreaker

I think it is the best Alex Rider adventure that is nothing but cliffhangers and climax. It is a book that kept me going to the library every week.
