A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry

Not very interesting, but very meaningful and full of information about how a minority lived back in the day.  About a poor African American family living in a small house and their struggles in life.

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

It is a cool world, because there's a bunch of mythical creatures and action.

The Sister Pact by Stacie Ramey

I really liked The Sister Pact because Allie has to battle her inner thoughts.  Through thick and thin her friends stuck by her.

The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer

This book is amazing; it has adventure, a tiny bit of romance (*wink wink*), and a cool story behind it.  The book also tells stories in sections in the main character's story.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay by J. K. Rowling

If you like reading theater scripts, this is the book for you!  It was an amazing mix of fantasy and adventure, and a Harry Potter themed adventure in the United States.
