Little Brother by Cory Doctorow

This book was entertaining, informative, and thought provoking. It’s about Marcus who leads a group of teenagers (and anyone under 25) through the Xnet against the DHS (Department of Homeland Security). Terrorists have blown up the Bay Bridge and Marcus is thought to be part of the terrorist groups and is held secretly in prison. He is finally released and starts to carry out his revenge against the DHS who consider him a terrorist. It explains several alternative technologies that are used in the book. This story could happen tomorrow or could be happening right now.

Time Enough For Drums by Ann Rinaldi

This is my favorite book by Ann Rinaldi (a YA historical fiction author). It is set during the Revolutionary War and is about a girl named Jem, who is smart and fiery. She wants to help with the war efforts but instead is being tutored by a man with opposite political views. It’s a romance and a historical fiction that will bring teens into what their life could have been like if they’d been alive then.

Book Crush by Nancy Pearl

This book is cool because it is just lists of recommended reading. It’s divided by age and genre, so you can find books that are just what you want. It’s for teens and kids, and there is another book that is for adults.

Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
