The August Five by Jenna Helland A dark book. I like dark books.


Graffiti Knight by Karen Bass Its a very hard book about world war 2. Read this book if you like.

message 40: by Jasmine (new)

Jasmine Lake | 249 comments My partner is Hannah and my picks for her are:

1. The Magnolia League (Magnolia League, #1) by Katie Crouch I read this in middle school and I thought it was great but my judgement of books was skewed then so I'm not sure now. Espeically since its Goodreads ranking isn't what I'd expect.

2. Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler I also read this is middle school but I still think it's a really good read.

3. Defy (Firstborn Trilogy, #1) by Raine Thomas I wanted to add a variety of genres to your picks and it has a high rating.
