Not a lot of people like to read, and a lot of people just like to listen to audio books instead. But you'll thank me for suggesting you sit down and read these 3 books.
1. Mosquitoland by David Arnold
This Mississippi author uses his book to take you on the emotional rollercoaster that is finding out who you are and where you belong as a teenager. The main characte, Mim, take some a journey across country in a grey hound to find her mom, only to find herself instead.
2. My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga
*trigger warning* This book goes straight to the heart from the very beginning as the main character contemplates suicide and how she’s going to commit it. Throughout the book, we get an inside look into why the character wants to commit suicide, how she plans it, and ultimately how she overcomes the want to commit suicide.
3. A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard
This autobiography tells the story of how Jaycee was abducted before school one morning and her escape many years later. Jaycee doesn’t shy away from telling all the details of what happened to her and how it affected her.
