The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky



This book is very good, and the movie was almost as good as the book I thought.  I like it because in the book, the way each chapter is set up, it is like different dates, and says "Dear friend..."  And it kept me interested throughout the book.

Roblox (game)



It is a fun game where the player can join any game.  The point of Roblox varies.  In MAD games, you either play as the sheriff, the innocent, or the murderer.  That game is one of the millions of trillions of games available.

Five Nights at Freddy's (game)



An indie point-and-click filled with mystery, horror, lore, backstories, and, most of all...  BB!

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews



Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is a great book to read and teaches readers to understand others in a new way.  The main character Greg Gaines and his best friend Earl Jackson love making short films.  On one fine day Greg visits Rachel Kushner, who has cancer, and sets out to make her feel better.  A journey of emotions running wild and friendships comes into play.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid - Old School by Jeff Kinney



It's about a kid who is in middle school and has to face the challenges of middle school.  In this book, it's about when his mom signs a petition for a no electronics day.  He has to face No Electronics Day.

If I Lie by Corrine Jackson



If I Lie is a wonderfully crafted novel about a senior named Quinn, who was caught cheating on her boyfriend, a US Marine.  It is the story of her year, as she is harassed by the entire town she lives in.  There is a lot of swearing, but the book focuses on the perseverance of the human spirit.

(Addition from Miss Jennie:  I totally agree!  This is one of my favorite stories - about loyalty, and lies, and perception.)

Wonder by R. J. Palacio



This book was VERY good.  It made me sad, mad, happy - all the things!  So it really made me appreciate myself and understand people.

The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger



This book is quite relatable for a teenager  The main character, Holden, is an unreliable narrator at best, and contradictory at worst, but his fears, hopes, and ideals still ring true, and at the end he finally figures out what he wants to do with his life.

The Selection by Kiera Cass



Very interesting and had a great plot with defined characters.  It's about a poor girl who signs up for a chance to be the wife of a prince.  She ends up getting selected and her future and lifestyle change.
