StonerMore Staff Picks +
This is my favorite book. I have read it countless times, and every time it feels more poignant than the last. Stoner is a remarkable novel about an unremarkable guy. Like the title character, the book is simple and serious. And like the title character, the book contains a moving inner beauty that belies its unassuming exterior.

Raina's middle school experience turns traumatic after an accident causes her to be fitted into awkward (and painful) braces. Of course, this misfortune occurs when Raina is trying to be accepted by her classmates, along with looking cool and mature at her school. Follow Raina as she discovers what it's like to grow up and make choices for herself, rather than what her classmates think. I wish this book was around when I was a middle school student, especially when I experienced my own orthodontic woes. This graphic novel is perfect for students who not only have braces, but also find that growing up isn't always easy.
The Hunger GamesMore Staff Picks +
This book is still popular for a good reason. It is action packed! In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. I loved this book so much that I even named one of our pets after a character! The movie is great, too!
The HelpMore Staff Picks +
One of my favorite books! Aibileen is a black maid in 1962 Jackson, Mississippi, who's always taken orders quietly, but lately she's unable to hold her bitterness back. Her friend Minny has never held her tongue but now must somehow keep secrets about her employer that leave her speechless. White socialite Skeeter just graduated college. She's full of ambition, but without a husband, she's considered a failure. Together, these seemingly different women join together to write a tell-all book about work as a black maid in the South, that could forever alter their destinies and the life of a small town... I loved the unabridged audio book even more so because of the various narrators! Read or listen to this book, then watch the movie! You won't be disappointed!
