Do any of you parents still give "coming of age" books to your kids?
Like "Dear God It's Me Margaret" to pre-teen girls?
I know as a teenage boy I loved all the old SE Hinton books, "The Outsiders", "Rumble Fish", "Than Was Then This Is Now".
"Go Ask Alice" is a great book to give to teens to warn of the dangers of drug use. It gets the point across without being preachy.
