TGIF at GReads!!

The awesomeness that is Ginger (or G, as I like to call her!) over at GReads! has created a great meme that is tons of fun. Each Friday, she poses a question for anyone to answer. Go check her out and join in the fun!

Back to School Reading:

Which books would you
like to see
in today's high school
literature classrooms?

Ooh, toughie, lol. 

Okay, so right away, one book stands out in my mind as definitely needing to be added to classroom reading lists.

And that book is...

by John Corey Whaley

This book is beautifully written, filled with vibrant characters and settings, and teaches the reader about humanity and dignity and love--three very important necessities every high-schooler should learn.

Another one I think should be added is...

by Ilsa J Bick

This book is the epitome of dystopian/apocalyptic splendor. (other than The Hunger Games, which I'm assuming, for the purpose of this post, is already on the curriculum. If not, school boards across the country should be ashamed.) It's written with amazing talent, and showcases how stories should be told.
