Top Ten Books to Read if You Are in the Mood for An Emotional Roller Coaster
Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway is an emotional book for so many reasons. It deals with kidnappings and reunions with friends and family.
The Last Good Day of the Year by Jessica Warman is also about a kidnapping, but it's more thriller than fluff. There are some edge-of-your-seat moments in this book that readers will really enjoy.
Teenage pregnancy. Upset family. Estranged boyfriend. New boyfriend. Yeah... Katie Cotugno's How to Love captures the hectic life of one young mom.
Panic by Lauren Oliver is literally an emotional roller coaster. There's high stakes games and money at risk for all these teens. Who will win?
Two teens with mental illnesses in a hospital full of adults with mental illnesses? Add in hormones, and It's Kind of a Funny Story gives you the perfect recipe for laughter, tears, and smiles.
There's no other way to describe Lynn Weingarten's Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls other than really, really messed up. This book is so insane that you just need to read it to find out what I'm talking about.
Everyone has something to say about Alice, but does anyone really know the truth. Jennifer Mathieu explores the horrible world of high school bullying in this novel.
Reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky is like taking a punch to the gut. It's full of good and shocking surprises that will be sure to take you on an emotional thrill ride.
E. Lockhart's We Were Liars is surprisingly shocking. There are moments that are so off-the-wall that you don't want to believe them, but it's such a crazy book that might make your head spin.
One broke girl trying to make money for school leads to a few months of making moonshine in the woods and a first love. This book is sweet and thrilling.
