Isn't Great Expectations an R-Rated movie, jazzkickazz?

Okay, look, I'm a teen and so I should know. My personal favorites are as follows:
Harry Potter
Lord Of The Rings/ The Hobbit
Wrinkle In Time/ Many Waters
Martian Chronicles (okay, sort of old, but still really good)
Holes
Goosebumps/ Fear Street
A Series Of Unfortunate Events
Artemis Fowl
By the way, it's probably just me, but I can not stand Judy Blume, or Beverly Cleary

Darren Shan, if you're an older teen and like loads of excitement in books and don't mind a bit of grim & guts...

I'm a teen also and some of my favorites are

1. Harry Potter
2. Queen's Own Fool - this is a great historical fiction
3. Any of Tamora Pierce's books - the circle of magic is the best in my opinion
4. Artimis Fowl
5. The Squire's Tale

I must disagree that Babysitters Club is a teen book.

I'm a teenager, and I really enjoyed reading 'Goblins In The Castle' by Bruce Coville, and 'The Wish List' by Eoin Colfer. They are both intrigueing and enjoyable novels to read, and you will get a laugh out of The Wish List for sure.

I just loved the artemis fowl books. I'm a harry potter addict too, but i think that artemis fowl ties very closely with hp books.
I agree, I don't personally like babysitter club novels, and i wouldn't recommend them as a teen book, but everyone has their own tastes.

I myself am I teen and I would have to agree with all of the Harry Potter books being very, very good. Susan Cooper's books are also very good. I have heard from many people that the Artemis Fowl books are good too. Judy Blume is awesome for teens. Lurlene McDaniels is also a very good author.
