The List of Good Books For Teenage Girls

Below is an ever growing, but refined list of some really good books for teenage girls. While we hope for a large selection of books, we also hope to find qualities in the book of either strong character, important message, or the gaining of a further understanding of some situation that may not directly affect you, but may be affecting other girls and women. However, we also want to ensure that the books on the list are a fantastic read and are guaranteed to entertain the reader for years to come. If you have a book you'd like to add, let us know.
