A new book called Shelf Discovery: The Teen Classics We Never Stopped Reading (by Lizzie Skurnick) explores one author's favorite young adult books. The author re-reads these teen classics and writes about how they affected her as an adolescent and now as an adult.
Some of the books mentioned in the collection include:
- A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'engle
- Harriet the Spy, by Louise Fitzhugh
- Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret, by Judy Blume
- Daughters of Eve, by Lois Duncan
My favorite teen classic is Blubber (also by Judy Blume). What's your favorite classic young adult book?
