My blog for tonight is inspired by going to my 16 year old niece's high school football games, at which she is a cheerleader. My husband and I have been faithfully attending both her away and home football games this season. Her school's team is amazingly good and we love seeing her out there cheering, so being the good aunt and uncle we are, we have been going. It makes me relive my better high school days (the cheerleading) and lets me forget some of the awful times (every other moment of high school.)
So here are a few awesome YA books that are great for this time of year and for some high school nostalgia:
Remember Me, Christopher Pike This book is about a girl who is dead. She doesn't know who killed her and now she's a ghost trying to solve her murder.
Jinx High, Mercedes Lackey . Psychotic teens in Tucson, AZ. A witch called in to stop them and an ancient evil is lying dormant under the city just beginning to awaken.
The Gathering Darkness, Lisa Collicut. A new girl in school. Two handsome twins. Past lives and vengeful witches.
A Royal Pain, Ellen Conford A girl finds out she was switched at birth with a princess from a foreign country. Luckily there's a super cute reporter to catch her interest.
So what books remind you of high school (in a good way)? Do any of them make you want to stand up and cheer "Hornets! Hornets! Go Go GO!" No. Just me? Well, if you change your mind, you can always join me at my niece's games - I'll be in the front row loudly (and embarrassingly) cheering.
