adolescent books

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I read a lot of crap as an adolescent. I read The Babysitter's Club and several short novels that were parts of series I never got into - Dear Diary and Lost Girls and The Truth about Taffy Sinclair. Utter crap.
But I also read some good stuff too. Roll of Thunder Hear my Cry. The Great Gilly Hopkins. Where The Red Fern Grows. A Wrinkle in Time.
Sometimes I work in the children's department of a bookstore and it really takes me back. I try to think back to some big kid/young adult books I enjoyed, when I'm helping parents and grandparents pick out books.

I never read Bridge to Tarabithia or The Indian in the Cupboard. Maybe I should start reading some kids books I never read as a child. I'd finish them in a snap and then I'd feel good about how many books I'm plowing through! :p
