TGIF

Fridays to re-cap the week's posts & to answer a proposed question hosted by Greads






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?

I've said this before and I will say it again. I feel every teenager should read Jay Ashers 13 Reasons Why - I actually will go as far as putting it on a high school reading list.
We read about way to many kids who loose there life through bullying and suicide. 


Jay Ashers book is about a young girl who commits suicide due to the treatment she receives by her peers.

Teens need to realize that all actions have  consequences.

I haven't read this book yet, but I do own it and I am excited to finally start it. Just from what I have heard about the book, I completely agree with your answer. I also think Ellen Hopkins books would also be beneficial for teenagers to read.

13 Reasons Why is such a good book, and very easily relatable to teens. Good choice!

Never heard of this book but I'm going to seek it out. Always interested in books that provide themes with life situations and are thought provoking.
