    The Diary of Anne Frank
    The 10 Habits of Highly Effective People/Teens (depending on if they are entering or leaving high school)

    Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson

  7. :P:

    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.

  8. lizzie:

    Juventud en Extasis

  9. Villads:

    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 :)

  10. Argenta:

    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.

  11. Des:

    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.

  19. Kotie:

    I cant believe no one has said this one yet!

    The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini.

  20. Crystal:

    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.

  21. Rafic:

    The Element by Ken Robinson

  22. Layla:

    “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

  23. Rowena:

    I don’t know… the books I read aren’t exactly “academic” haha.

  24. zavia:

    i love to read the latest and original version of His book who created me,

    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

  33. Teresa and I had a great system for catching rides.
    Another important concept for simplifying your child’s life is to not worry them with every adult problem.
    The unwary student should note that the eye-catching prices quoted are invariably
    exclusive of taxes and fuel surcharges which can add
    between.

    to get the right fittings on a portable gas generator and to permanently install the stationary model
    to ensure that everything is properly set up and avoid leaks and
    accidents. Are you worried that you’re placing too
    great a burden on your partner to look after the kids.

    Unfortunately, I did not quite see it that way myself.
    If you allow the same people to control all or any of these elements with no double-checks by other
    staff or alternating tasks, expect theft to occur.

    who are wishing in favor of blogging.

  42. 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!!

  43. eljai:

    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.
