Flowers for Algernon
To Kill a Mockingbird
Go ask Alice (I didn’t actually read this but I wish I had)
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime
The Life of Pi
A Great and Terrible Beauty
The Lovely Bones
The Secret Life of Bees
A biography of Hellen Keller (I don’t remember which title)
The Catcher in the Rye
The Diary of Anne Frank
Under the Feet of Jesus
Lord of the Flies
Me Talk Pretty One Day
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
Number the Stars
The Scarlet Letter
in no particular order. might add more later, it’s fun to think of these and realize how much i’ve been influenced!
The Book Thief
The Diary of Anne Frank
The 10 Habits of Highly Effective People/Teens (depending on if they are entering or leaving high school)
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.
A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle
Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson
Im glad the book theif and the harry potter series are listed on here
but if i could recommend any book to any high school child it would be anything my stephen king. “It” is a personal favourite just to see where a truely amazing author can take you within your own mind.
Juventud en Extasis
Illusions by richard bach i seriously encourage anyone who reads this comment to read that book its very short but it will change the way you look on everything and it has good humor to
As a high-school teacher, I would not make them read anything they don’t want to themselves. It’s plain counterproductive at this age.
Okay, a lot of the books being suggested, we do have to read nowadays. I really think The Five People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom should be required though. It isn’t religious, it simply shows how you impact peoples lives. Also, Of Mice and Men, beautiful story.

The Once and Future King
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton.
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford
As A Man Thinketh
The Book of Mormon
I cant believe no one has said this one yet!
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini.
The Center Cannot Hold. It was a suggested read by my AP psych teacher and its a good look at what really goes on with at least one mental illness, which i think needs to be more known about today, not what the media tells us.
The Element by Ken Robinson
“The Outsiders” by S.E. Hinton. While most schools do have it as part of the curriculum, it is not required in every school and I think it should be. It teaches valuable life lessons that kids can grow from. Another suggestion could be “That Was Then This Is Now” also by S.E. Hinton
I don’t know… the books I read aren’t exactly “academic” haha.
i love to read the latest and original version of His book who created me,
His book is my mandatory,of course its The Qurran
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens
“The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” (and the rest of the Trilogy of Five Volumes) by Douglas Adams
Voltaire: I agree, that “A People’s History of the United States” would be a highly appropriate book in US, but, as I’m Polish, I’d prefer to read something more global, as I think the whole world should be included

who are wishing in favor of blogging.
Great blog you’ve got here.. It’s hard to find excellent writing like yours these
days. I really appreciate individuals like you! Take care!!
I think that it’s fine to read selections of books like the Quran,Bible,etc as literature, because they are, and there are so many references to them in culture and in other literature and art. Reading a selection of literature is not endorsing that particular view, or purporting that it’s all factual. Things have swung to the bizarre if people are denied any reference to those things that have such an impact because someone is terrified, basically superstitiously that reading any selection from that text is going to infiltrate the mind and do permanent lasting damage, just another form of censorship.
That being said, a few books that made my mind and heart stretch in some pretty incredible ways…Diary of Ann Frank, Man’s Search for Meaning, Just about any autobiography actually. It’s fascinating and enlightening to see how people experience and process their own lives and how they dot to where they are. I’ve read autobiographies of people who live in spheres that I usually read nothing about and have been just as captivated as I am reading an autobiography of people I am familiar with and admire.
