What books would you recommend for a soon to be freshman that puts a new perspective on life? Maybe something in between The Giver by Lois Lowry and Schizo By Nic Sheff. I highly appreciate the advice. (Sorry. I didn't know about this blog.)
If you’re looking for something that deals with mental health and family, with a tiny bit of romance, try Reality Boy by AS King. This book is heavy, but so important. I think I talked about this recently but it’s about a teen who was on a show like Nanny 911 when he was a toddler and there was a lot more going on behind the camera than anyone knew.
Going Bovine by Libba Bray would be another book similar to Schizo that might appeal to you.
Feed by MT Anderson is one of my go-to books that I give to teens who want to want something thought-provoking.
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie is great for a new perspective as well as being a diverse read. It’s definitely the lightest of the books I mentioned here and it includes some fun drawings.
