Spawned a pop-cultural phenomenon, that in my mind rivals the legacy of the Sopranos. HARRY POTTER & SORCERER’S STONE by JK Rowling
Intense, better than West Side Story. Written by a 16 yr old girl after watching a kid get beat up. THE OUTSIDERS by Susan E. Hinton
THE SELECTION by Kiera Cass
The little man who could not grow, armed with a toy drum, wreaks havoc on the consciousness of Europe. THE TIN DRUM by Gunter Grass.
