    Sarah Dessen:

    Lock and Key - Ruby has been living alone in the farmhouse since her mother abandoned her, but when this is discovered she is sent to live with her sister Cora who she has not seen in about 10 years. Cora's husband Jamie is an extremely successful founder of a popular networking site on the Web. A nice large house, private school, new clothes, and a promise for the future are quite an adjustment to make.

    Just Listen - Annabel Greene is the youngest of three very different sisters. She has had a very bad summer and must now return to school. She has never been so lonely or so sad, yet she must face each day. As she has her own problems to confront, her entire family is dealing with issues that plague her sister, Whitney. By circumstance, Annabel and Owen, whose life revolves around music, become friends. It is Owen who will help Annabel to meet certain challenges.

    The Truth About Forever - Macy's father has recently died and she is feeling guilty. Her mother isn't coping with his death well at all. Macy's boyfriend, Jason, represents security, but frankly he is a clueless jerk. It might have been a very long summer, but then by chance Macy meets an interesting group of people. I loved everyone in the Wish Catering crew, but most especially Wes. No matter the difficulties life has thrown each member of Wish they persevere because they must.

    Dreamland - Caitlin is the younger and she feels second-rate sister to Cass who is perfect in every way. Now Caitlin is 16 and rather than starting at Yale, Cass has run off with a guy. This year for Caitlin is about school, cheerleading, parties, her boyfriend, and so much much more. Unfortunately, this novel has an important message every young lady needs to hear.

    Keeping the Moon - Colie and her mother used to be fat. They moved frequently and were homeless for a time. Then Colie's mother went on a "let's get healthy" kick and they both lost weight. Now mom has a good job and they live in a nice house. Unfortunately, because of a really mean girl at school, Colie has acquired a reputation she did not deserve. Mom is going to Europe to work for the summer and Colie is going to spend the summer with her eccentric aunt.

    That Summer - Summers hold special memories for many of us: vacations, beaches, picnics, summer jobs, summer loves, maybe even a wedding or two. Haven, younger sister to Ashley, is fondly remembering a summer five years ago because in this current summer her world is falling apart. Her father had an affair, her parents divorced, and now he is getting married to the co-worker with whom he had the affair. Ashley is also getting married this summer and Haven doesn't understand why Ashley would choose this man.

    Someone Like You - Halley and Scarlet, both 16 and juniors in high school, have been best friends forever. Scarlet was always the strong one, but now she needs Halley to be there for her. As they begin the new school year, Scarlet is pregnant and her boyfriend has been killed in a motorcycle accident. Meanwhile Halley has problems of her own. Halley and her mother, a psychologist, have gotten along well in the past but that has changed. Halley's mother used to write books about their relationship, but now they just argue.

    This Lullaby - Remy, Jess, Chloe, and Lissa are friends (sort of) and now it is the summer between high school and college. This is a time of transition for each of them, but the story concentrates on Remy who because her mother has had a series of husbands and Remy never even met her father, she is very cynical about love.

    Ann Brashares:

    The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants - A wonderful story about Tibby, Carmen, Lena, and Bridget, four very different friends who are spending their first summer apart from one another. Each of the girls faces her own crisis and, in the end, they are there for each other. It's a great story of friendship.

    Sequels: The Second Summer of the Sisterhood; Girls in Pants: The Third Summer of the Sisterhood; and Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood.

    -"Atonement" by Ian McEwan

    A young girl interferes with her much older sister's love life, misinterpreting everything and essentially ruinging it for her forever. Sad, but an AWESOME read and definitely a page-turner.

    -"Sundays at Tiffanys" by James Patterson

    As a little girl, Jane has no one. Her mother, the powerful head of a Broadway theater company, has no time for her. She does have one friend - a handsome, comforting, funny man named Michael - but only she can see him.

    Years later, Jane is in her thirties and just as alone as ever. Then she meets Michael again - as handsome, smart and perfect as she remembers him to be. But not even Michael knows the reason they've really been reunited.

    -"Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen

    A classic Cinderella story. Girl meets boy, girl misinterprets boy's actions towards her, boy falls in love with girl...and so it goes. :)

    -"A Walk to Remember" by Nicholas Sparks

    Well, if you've seen the movie, you know the book. It's about a very Christian girl and a very screwed-up boy who fall in love with a bittersweet ending. It will change the way you look at people forever.

    Catherine Cookson is a FAB author. Alot of her books contain romance without being all sappy - it's usually the subplot in the story.

    Also the Flowers in the Attic series by Virginia Andrews is fab too.

    i'm a big fan of jk ward, it's vampires though. sherrilyn kenyon is also vampires, but pretty good.

    when i was 16 i was a big fan of linda lael miller, julie garwood, (her new stuff doesn't interest me, try 1999 and earlier) debbie macromber, these are all much tamer writers than the ones i just mentioned.
