Teenage Girls Reading Books on LawnRecently, one of my high school sons told me he is pretty sure there is a correlation between required high school reading selections and depression in high school students.  There could be something to that, but the good news is that school is out and you can read what you want.  It can be deep and meaningful, or fun and frivolous–you get to choose and no essay is required at the end.  So to give you a start, here is a quick list of young adult books our reviewers have loved.
