“Be as careful of the books you read, as of the company you keep; for your habits and character will be as much influenced by the former as the latter.”
― Paxton Hood
It’s true that the books you read will always stay with you. Teenage is a confusing time with the emotional highs and lows, and what better way to relate to the angst, than reading a particularly riveting set of books that will get your high-schooler to not only introspect, but also help express themselves better.
So here’s a list of books that your high schooler will definitely enjoy:
- Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger
- To kill a mockingbird by Harper Lee
- The Diary of Anne Frank
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
- Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
- A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry
