This list has several that I'd probably like but haven't read! I'll throw my vote in for "The Book Thief."

Janice | 56 comments I also loved "The Book Thief", but I am going to throw my vote in for "Bless Me, Ultima", which I am currently reading. I heard about it on The Great American Read, and learned it was banned in Arizona by the school system there is 2014, as it emphasizes Chicano culture and history, and deemed to be not consistent with "western" thinking. I am really liking it.
