elissa I had the major responsibilty for creating the original 19-title list, but there are still a few books on it that I haven't personally read.


message 2: by elissa (new)

elissa Thanks for voting, June!


message 3: by elissa (new)

elissa Not sure what's with people adding fantasy novels to this list. "Problem novels" aren't usually in the fantasy genre!


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Removed Isn't It Pretty To Think So?. Spam. Not teen literature.
