I have been a reading teacher for many years and have compiled a book list for my students, family and friends to use. I only include the best of the best for young adult fiction. . This list is suitable for middle and high school and has been student approved for years. The book list is categorized by 6 different genres of fiction and nonfiction, with over 100 books. I have personally read every book on the list. And of the 100+ books that have MADE it on the list, 500+ haven't! This list is especially appropriate for the reluctant reader. It helps narrow the field of books to a manageable 100, while also breaking down into categories, reading level and topic areas. My students reach for it year after year!
