    I have always loved to read. Throughout my teenage years, I have come across some really great books that I have not only read more than once, but have even helped me out through my teenage years. Here is a list I have compiled that I feel every teenage girl should read.

    1. Just Listen by Sarah Dessen

    Any Sarah Dessen book is good for navigating your teenage years, however, Just Listen was rather exceptionally, in my opinion. I won't give out any spoilers but I will say, it touched me personally and even if your problem isn't as big as Annabelle Greene's, it still shows that there are many ways to handle things and that music is a powerful thing because "silence is so freaking loud."

    2. It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini

    Ned Vizzini crafted a masterpiece when he wrote this book. He took his own pain and used it to produce something for others who may be going through what he did. I got my hands on this book in te eight grade, and while it is more suited for high schoolers, it is an excellent read with wholesome lessons and values. I would also recommend this book for teenage boys, as well. Nowadays, a lot of teenagers are on antidepressants or are just really unhappy with their lives. This book shows the good in life and can really give you a new perspective.

    3. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

    Although this book may not be for everyone, due to it being based around cancer, it is still a magnificent book that will not only broaden your vocabulary, but touch your heart. It is beautifully written and, although it may just rip your heart out, it is a great read that will really teach you new things.

    4. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Steven Chbosky

    I'm sure many people have already seen the movie based off this book, and although I have yet to see the movie, the book is always better. This book shows what it's like for someone to enter highschool with virtually no friends. The main character, Charlie, guides us through making new friends, going to parties, trying drugs, first dates, and his feelings and opinions through all of it.

    This is all i have to share for now. I hope this books will serve to help you just as they have helped me. Happy Reading!

    Good books are good books, regardless of who reads them. "The Fault in Our Stars," while a darn good book in its own right, shouldn't be prioritized over other good books like, say, "White Fang" or "Snow Crash."

      That's very true but I was being mindful in the sense of how they affected me as a teen.
