Light Years by Tammar Stein

The book Light Years is about a girl named Maya who struggles with finding herself.  She is originally from Israel but moves to Virginia for college.  I rate this book a 10/10 because Tammar Stein describes the details very vividly.  I totally recommend this book!

Swing Kids (movie)

Very good movie about the beginning of the Holocaust.  Peter, the main character in the movie, has had his dad "disappear."  It's up to him to find out why/how.  He makes and breaks friendships along the way.  He must support his family and obey the Nazi officers to keep his family safe and sound.

The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton

The novel The Outsiders was an elaborate portrayal of the disputes between teens from a socially higher class and the socially neglected class.  Ponyboy, the main character, faces disputes from himself and many other people.  The plot takes off slowly but builds each individual character to the point of reality; suddenly the book is over leaving you yearning for more.

Sisters by Raina Telgemeier

The book is really good.  It's about two sisters who fight all the time.  They have to go on a road trip.  They're stuck in a van for about a week.  Soon they learn how to get along a little bit more.

Proof of Forever by Lexa Hillyer

Four girls (Joy, Luce, Tali, and Zoe) meet at a summer camp, and for several years, they have been inseparable.  Then, when they go to high school, they drift apart.  At a camp reunion, they travel back in time and have to find a way back to the present together.

Divergent by Veronica Roth

You should definitely read Divergent!  Divergent is all about a girl named Tris and a boy named Four, also known as Tobias.  They fall in love and later in the series they go through a bunch of adventures trying to save all the factions.

The Hidden Memory of Objects by Danielle Mages Amato

An action-packed book full of murder mysteries and historical objects.  A modern day story that ties in with the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
