I have a new goal... i want to put together a list of happy (even funny!) teen books for summer reading. This all started because I'm reading A Long Way Gone and I just can't handle anymore death and destruction. So I tried to find a good happy book for my book club and it took serious effort!!!
So let's make a list. I'd like to gear it to 7th-9th grade specifically, but older is ok too. This is what I have so far:
My Most Excellent Year by Kluger
Lemonade Mouth by Hughes
Skullduggery Pleasant by Landy
Bloody Jack by Meyer
