What's Your Favorite Teen Classic?

Kim Conte

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:

  1. A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'engle
  2. Harriet the Spy, by Louise Fitzhugh
  3. Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret, by Judy Blume
  4. Daughters of Eve, by Lois Duncan

My favorite teen classic is Blubber (also by Judy Blume). What's your favorite classic young adult book?
