4After by Amy Efaw. I loved loved loved this book. It blew my mind. Made me think about the world in a whole new light. Caused me to rethink every judgment I'd ever passed on any other person.
3The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. Tough to get myself to read because a story about the war-torn Middle East didn't sound appealing to me at all, but I'm glad I finally picked it up. It kept me reading all night long. Made me cry. Made me want to change the world. Took me deep into the emotional recesses of one man's heart. I adore this book.
2Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. Another book that totally tugged at my heartstrings and made me rethink my perception of the world. It made me think back to all of the people I wrongly judged back in my high school years, made me wonder what their stories must have truly been. The language the author uses and the way she writes is beautiful. Read this book.
1Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine. This book is my all-time favorite girly book. I read it in middle school and fell in love with it--more than a decade later, and I still love it. I'll probably love it til the day I die. Don't watch the movie. Read the book. You'll thank me later.
