Okay, so it's sweet and sappy with a few deep moments, but The Princess by Lori Wick is seriously one of my favourites. :)
I'd also recommend anything by Brother Andrew... awesome missionary!
I think your list next year needs a teacher book or two on it... :)

These look awesome! I just looked up Kisses from Katie (It sounded familiar) and I read the summary--I can't wait to start reading it! Also, I'm in the middle of the Hunger Games series, and it is so good as well! Can't wait to finish it!

Thanks for sharing what you read!

xo, gina
