So Hailey will be starting online high school through UT next year, which is exciting and a little overwhelming and she just mentioned to me that she wished she had a summer reading list and I guess that’s the sort of thing I’m supposed to do for her now?
And technically I’m fine with that because I love making reading lists but I thought maybe it would be even better if I ask you for help. What are the books that every 14 year old should read? What are the books that changed you at that age? What are the books that your teenager loved? Leave them in the comments.
PS. We were at a bookstore yesterday and Hailey asked the owner if she had any books by the Shades of Gray lady because she’s her favorite author and the woman just sort of stared at me and I had to explain that she was talking about Between Shades of Gray (a book about Siberian prison caps during WWII) and not Fifty Shades of Grey (a book about adult spanking). These are exactly the kind of conversations I can’t wait to have when I have my own bookstore.
