I think it is really important to have books in the school library that deal with the tougher aspects of teenage life. Sometimes it is easier for teens to read about a subject that might affect them personally than open up to another person. I think sometimes you just have to get something straight in your own mind before confiding in others. That is why I would love to see the following 2 books in the school library.  Title: Tell Me A Secret Author: Holly Cupala Publisher: Harper Teen Publication Date: 20 Sep 2011 Synopsis from Goodreads It’s tough living in the shadow of a dead girl. . . .

In the five years since her bad-girl sister Xanda’s death, Miranda Mathison has wondered about the secret her sister took to the grave, and what really happened the night she died. Now, just as Miranda is on the cusp of her dreams—a best friend to unlock her sister’s world, a ticket to art school, and a boyfriend to fly her away from it all—Miranda has a secret all her own.

Title: The Rise of Renegade X Series: Rise of Renegade X Author: Chelsea Campbell Publisher: Egmont USA Publication Date: 11 May 2010 Synopsis from Goodreads

Sixteen-year-old Damien Locke has a plan: major in messing with people at the local supervillain university and become a professional evil genius, just like his supervillain mom. But when he discovers the shameful secret she’s been hiding all these years, that the one-night stand that spawned him was actually with a superhero, everything gets messed up. His father’s too moral for his own good, so when he finds out Damien exists, he actually wants him to come live with him and his goody-goody superhero family. Damien gets shipped off to stay with them in their suburban hellhole, and he has only six weeks to prove he’s not a hero in any way, or else he’s stuck living with them for the rest of his life, or until he turns eighteen, whichever comes first.
