The Top Ten

The Hunger Games
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.
This books is on a great way to become a classique. It has everything a cult classic needs. Great characters, astonishing plot, thrilling pacing and heart-stopping action. Read it, you won't regret it.
[Newest]Best book ever read

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...
[Newest]Give me chill, it's that good if we just live in inside or outside or both of them...

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!
