This week's top 10 list is:  Top Ten Books that Tackle Tough Issues

1.) Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
2.) Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson

5.) Columbine by Dave Cullen
6.) We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed with Our Families by Philip Gourevitch
7.) These Things Hidden by Heather Gudenkauf

  1. Great list! I chose Wintergirls too. I liked how you chose Columbine rather than Hate List or Nineteen Minutes, not as people know about it.

    Here's my list: http://bit.ly/qJiozA

  5. Great list! I opted of other Holocaust books but Sarah's Key is definitely a great book to add to this list.
