Teen Read Week: October 16, 2014

It's Teen Read Week!

From the Teen Read Week site:
Teen Read Week™ is a national adolescent literacy initiative created by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). It began in 1998 and is held annually during the third week of October. Its purpose is to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users.
In honor of Teen Read week, I'm going to show case a book a day that I really enjoyed reading when I was a teen (as if it was that long ago).

I also realized that I should probably be attaching reviews to these books, but honestly some of these I've read so long ago that it's hazy. And I probably already wrote a review for them then, so I really don't want to write another one. What I can do is direct you to places where I've written reviews, such as Book Away and my Goodreads account.

Today's book is:

I Am Not Esther, Fleur Beale
I remember this being one of my first "darker" books. It's about a girl who is forced to be a part of a religious cult and is forced to decide the type of person she wants to be. I remember it being really impactful because I'd never really read anything about religious cults. It's a good read and I definitely suggest it if you're looking for something to give you a different perspective.

Suggested for: religion, YA, realistic fiction, drama, coming of age, suspense, family
