I want to read Guardian, Thriteen Reasons Why and Purple Heart. I LOVED Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian and I really liked Flygirl too. I would also add Marcelo in the Real World, A Wish After Midnight and Liar. Oh and if you liked Flygirl, I think you may like Mare's War even more, there's more WWII action!

Miss Attitude: we recently got Mare's War into our school library. I'll add it to my TBR (which just gets longer and longer)! Thanks for the recommendation. Liar and Marcelo are also waiting for me

Everyone's tbr list grows, especially once you start blogging, haha!! I'm envious that you work in a library so you get easy access to all these books :)
