Books/authors you would recommend to adolescents?
BackstoryI'm a teacher at an alternative high school, and my stock of motivating novels is wearing thin as the school year closes. Most of my students have expended the books off my shelf that are of highest interest to them and I need to stock up with new materials. Please offer books and authors you think/know at-risk youth will enjoy. To give you an idea of what they already love: Alan Lawrence Sitomer, Ellen Hopkins, Laurie Halse Anderson, Orca books, Bluford High Series, Chris Crutcher, Graphic Novels (such as Sentences by M.F.Grimm).
