Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books You Wish Were Taught In School

Top Ten Books I Wish Were Taught In School

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

A powerful character cast dealing with everyday life. A realistic book all teenagers could relate to.

The Fault in Our Stars

A beautiful outlook on life and self discovery.

The Freedom Writers Diary

Teenagers from all walks of life and that were raised to be enemies with one another, coming together.

Dear Bully: Seventy Authors Tell Their Stories

A time where bullying is taking over schools, this book would be perfect for victims, bullies and bystanders to read. To relate, learn and grow from it.

Thousand Words

Living in a digital generation. The Internet has proven to be great but also extremely dangerous. 

Bitter End

Abusive relationships do not just happen in adult relationships. Teenagers finding themselves in a difficult situation may be able to recognize the signs of abuse and seek help.

Nineteen Minutes

An unfortunate outcome of a high school student being bullied.

The Pact

A drastic decision made by 2 teenagers. It's important to teach kids/teenagers to seek help when they need it and to not be afraid.

Thirteen Reasons Why


This was a tough one! There are so many to chose from, but I feel these ones had the strongest impact on me and I know Teens would benefit from reading them. Sometimes it just takes a book to show you that you are not alone.

  1. Ooh I'm going to have to add some of these books to my TBR pile. They look brilliant :-) Great list!

  2. The fault in our stars is a great pick :)

  3. Nice list! I'd definitely read The Fault In Our Stars, required or otherwise! :D And I thought Thirteen Reasons Why was pretty rad too :D Speak depressed me quite a bit, but it was an amazing book, in my opinion. So yeah, some great picks :)

  4. TFiOS and Thousand Words made my list too! I haven't read Bitter End, but I did add a book about abusive relationships! Great list!
