Looking for JJ by Anne Cassidy
Great book.

Luna - A Novel by Julie Anne Peters
Critically Acclaimed author Julie Anne Peters really shows the other side of being a teenager and being transsexual. Being transsexual myself i find that she captures what it feels like to be transsexual. I found it very interesting and a fantastic read and would give it high reccommendations.
Jennifer, 16
Cross Tides by Lorraine Orman
i found it quite interesting to read. She really put in some effort to make this story a bit interesting and i am sure that other young teenagers will enjoy reading this book! You go girl!
Samantha, 15
