Asher, Jay. 13 Reasons Why. London: Penguin, 2017. Print.

"13 Reasons Why" is a book about a teenage girl going through a very hard time with bullying. She ends up committing suicide, but before she killed herself she made a set of 13 tapes explaining why it led to that. This book made it onto my list because I really enjoyed the book, it was also a somewhat easy read because it was relatable to the society we live in. I could also relate to myself which made it more interesting than if I couldn't relate to the protagonist of the book. They also made a TV series out of it; which I watched and liked as well. Yet, I think I liked the book better.

Yoon, Nicola. Everything, Everything. London: Corgi Children's, 2017. Print.

This book is about a girl with a medical problem that doesn't allow her to go outside. She has to be completely isolated from the world. She lives with her mom and has a personal nurse that stays with her every day. As a guy moves in next door, she starts to fall in love with him and is willing to risk her life for him. I like this book because it has a REALLY surprising ending. I never saw it coming and that is what I think I enjoyed most. But, I also liked how real it was, and that it could actually happen to somebody.

Hopkins, Ellen. Glass. New York: Margaret K. McElderry, 2013. Print.

This is the second book in a trilogy. This by far is my favorite book series I have ever read. It is about a girl named Kristina and the struggles she goes through while being an addict. And having a child at such a young age and putting it all on her mom to take care of him. This is on my list because it is by far one of my favorite books. And I don't like a lot of books, so this was a really good one. I also thought that it was relatable to the society we live in today.

Hopkins, Ellen. Fall Out. New York: Margaret K. McElderry, 2013. Print.

This is the third book in the trilogy. It is about Kristina's first born son and what it it like to be the son of an addict. He shares about the hardships and the experience of what his life is like now. I like this book because there were different perspectives than just his in the book. It also was like the first two, in which I could never put it down. It just kept me hanging at the end of every "chapter". And wanting to read more. It was also very relatable to society and I enjoyed the book a lot.
