50 Books All Teens Should Read Before They Turn 17

https://www.seventeen.com/life/a29176/17-books-every-girl-should-read-before-shes-17/
"Books can take you anywhere. They have the extraordinary ability to take us to different worlds through the eyes and thoughts of a main character or narrator. Their experiences feel so real as we read on to see what happens next. Some leave you thinking about what just happened, inspire you in different ways, and help you deal with heavy topics. Others teach you about the world around you, but books can also just be a fun way to pass the time. Since you could read every day of your life and never pick up the same book twice, it's tough to know where to start. That's why we've narrowed down the most inspiring, exciting, pull-you-in books that every single teenager should read. These are the best-of-the-best stories to finish before you turn 17".
