4. Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging, by Louise Rennison
5. Crime and Punishment, by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
6. Tangerine, by Edward Bloor
7. His Dark Materials Trilogy, by Phillip Pulman (cheating to pick 3 books, I know, but they are all too AMAZING to pick just one).

  1. I love the classics. Jane Eyre is a great story. No one mentions it any more.
