http://www.teenreads.com/teenreadscom-ultimate-reading-list

Teen Reads is a great site for teens who are looking for ideas about what books to read. It has an Ultimate Reading List comprised of books that are  “compelling, beautifully written, pure fun, thought-provoking or edge-of-your-seat gripping; books that we would hand to someone and say, ‘read this!'”
