  • 1anne-of-green-gables.jpg

    Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery 

    Your mom read this one (maybe even your grandma, too!), which is probably why your sis loves it so much. This book follows Anne Shirley, an orphan who is adopted accidently by an older brother and sister. Her imagination and cleverness are what kept your big sis turning the pages, and you’ll do the same.

  • 2LookingforAlaska.jpg

    Looking for Alaska by John Green 

    You obviously know all about The Fault in Our Stars by John Green but Looking for Alaska is the first page-turner the author ever published. Your sis loves it so much, we bet her copy is almost falling apart. In this book, Miles Halter experiences the ups and downs of love with the cute, crazy and clever Alaska Young while he adjusts to a new life at Culver Creek Boarding School.

    Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen 

    Sarah Dessen is the ultimate teen author, so there’s no doubt you’ve already read one of her amazing titles. Your big sis reads every single one of Dessen’s books, but her fave has probably always been Keeping the Moon. Read about Colie Sparks’ bummer life as an outcast and the life-changing summer she spent at her aunt’s house.

  • 4deenie.jpg

    Deenie by Judy Blume 

    Your big sis raves about Judy Blume all the time? But you’ve never understood what all the fuss was about? Newly diagnosed with scoliosis, Deenie must learn how to cope with the reality of living with a back brace for four years and deal with the pressures her fam puts on her to pursue a career in modeling. Even though Deenie might have seen her brace as a bad thing, she (spoiler alert!) learns a thing or two from the piece of metal.

  • 5PrincessLessons.jpg

    Princess Lessons (A Princess Diaries Book) by Meg Cabot 

    You and your big sis love spreading out on the couch and having a Princess Diaries movie marathon, but what you don’t know is how your sis learned to act so prim and proper. Well, she learned it from Princess Mia, of course. In Princess Lessons (A Princess Diaries Book), Princess Mia spills all the tips and tricks on what it takes to be the best girl you can be. Bonus: It’s filled with adorbs illustrations.

    The Babysitters Club #1: Kristy’s Great Idea by Ann M. Martin 

    This book is what prepared your sis for her first job babysitting. She read all about Kristy, Mary Anne, Claudia and Stacey starting their very own biz. Hanging with friends while making money and having loads of fun? What could be better?!
