My little sister moved in with us this month. It's a good thing (I think!). She's 18 and not much of a reader. But, she is in a new place without friends or a job so she needs something to do and is looking for a recommendation.
She really enjoyed the Uglies trilogy (including Extras), so I recommended The Adoration of Jenna Fox, which she read and also really enjoyed. Now she's looking for another book, and I am not quite sure what to recommend. The only other books that she really likes are what my other sister refers to as depressing. For example, she loved The Burn Journals, by Brent Runyon, which is about a boy that attempts suicide by dousing himself in gasoline. She's also read several books about young adults who are addicted to drugs (most of them die); someone who gets raped, contracts HIV, and dies; you probably get the idea. She would tell you that she doesn't like Sci-Fi (though she did like the two mentioned above, so maybe some softer sci-fi would be ok), and she doesn't really like fantasy (including Harry P), mysteries, or adventures stories, and those are primarily what I read.
So, I am turning to the blogging community in hopes of finding some suggestions. Anyone?
