Jennifer (jennbacca) | 3 comments Hi everyone!
I am an 8th grade Language Arts teacher, and I always go to my students to ask what books they want in their classroom library, but I won't see them this summer so I thought I would post here to get suggestions from you guys!

Who better to ask than teenagers!? Please try to give me the book title AND author! Thanks in advance!

I work as a sub clerk in a library and so I read a lot of YA books! I also asked my 15 year old son and my 13 year old daughter for suggestions!! I put the links to the books so that way you just have to click on them and you can see the covers!! Hope this helps you! :)
