Questions About Highland High School

Any good book recommendations?

I use goodreads.com, and I love the site. However, a lot of the book ratings and recommendations don't correspond with my opinion and what I like. I started using the site about six months ago and this is the list of books I read so far: 1) "Now You See Me" (S.J. Bolton) 2) "Annie On My Mind" (Nancy Garden)---> {I'm not a lesbo, and this book was absolute shit. Poorly written} 3) "My Enemy's Cradle" (Sara Young) 4) "The Fiddler" (Beverly Lewis) 5) "The Smile" (Donna Jo Napoli) 6) "A Separate Peace" (John Knowles) 7) "The Immortal Highlander" (Karen Marie Moning) 8) "The Sandcastle Girls" (Chris Bohjalian) 9) "Perks of Being a Wallflower" (Stephen Chbosky) 10) "Chasing the Sun" (Tracie Peterson) 11) "Don't Breathe a Word" (Jennifer McMahon) 12) "The Journey of Crazy Horse: A Lakota History" (Joseph, M Marshall) 13) "1984" (George Orwell) 14) "Olive Kitteridge" (Elizabeth Strout) 15) "Eleven Minutes" (Paulo Coelho) 16) "Romeo and Juliet" (William Shakespeare) 17) "To Kill a Mockingbi
