4. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini: I don't know why it took me so long to read this, I cried and cried and rooted for these characters so much.

5. Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson: Another book with another life lesson and that everybody needs to read, and it's written in verse, it doesn't get better than that :)
