Great meaning great literature OR great fiction- not just the classics. I'm a current junior, going to be a senior in high school in the hall. I like The Pact by Jodi Picoult (long long story,) Jane Eyre, trashy guilt fiction by Jane Green, and nonfiction stuff like The War on Choice by Gloria Feldt (a book about birth control and politics.) The Crucible. Cathcher in the Rye. Chuck Palahniuk (I've read Lullaby and Survivor, in the middle of Choke, which I don't like as much, at least not yet.)
This wasn't a great list at all, but the list isn't really what I'm going for anyway. What I really want to know is: what are your favorite books? Books you think everyone should read? That are just amazing in general?
