I hereby declare 16-17 as La Mesa's year of reading. Join us to share your favorite books and learn about a few new ones. This summer I vowed to read a book a week and I made it! Here are a few of the titles from the 10 I have finished so far.
When I was in junior high I loved stories that I could relate to. For me, this meant realistic fiction. Even if I hadn't had similar experiences to the characters in the book I could still relate to their struggles and learn to walk in someone else's shoes for a short period of time. This summer I read two stories about teens growing up under diverse conditions. Each one of them had a unique story to share .
What are your favorite realistic fiction books?
