TGIF is a feature at GReads which recaps the posts for the week and has a different question each week for bloggers to answer.
This Friday's Question:
Making a Difference: Which book(s) would you put in the hands of today's teenagers in hopes of making a difference in their lives?
There are so many great books from now and the past that would make a difference in the lives of today's teenagers. Of course, not every teenager would relate to a particular book, but I think there are those that would be good in different situations. Each book is important in its' own way, but those that I think would "hit home" for some teenagers are as follows:
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
Crank by Ellen Hopkins
Identical by Ellen Hopkins
Split by Swati Avasthi
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult
I feel that all the books listed above could be related to by different teenagers depending on their situations. These books may also help those who want to help others figure out a way to do it. There is so much pain and hurt in this world that if we are able to stop someone from hurting or help them heal, then we are doing some good. There are plenty of other books out there that teens can relate to, but these are the ones that first came to mind.
How about you? What books can you think of that would help out teens or make a difference in their lives or the life of someone they know?
