speak - laurie halse anderson
the torey hayden books are quite good - they can be quite triggering though..... i'd reccomend ghost girl or one child.
theres also the midnight dreamers by siobhan curham its like all about finding yourself etc

Re: Books about growing up and facing challenges

I have a couple that might work, but could be slightly young for her

Blindsided by Priscilla Cummings (14 year old girl progressively loses her vision and goes to a school for the blind)

After Ever After by Jordan Sonnenblick (two 13-year old friends (boys) deal with the aftermath of cancer treatments as well as school and girls) This one is also triggering for death/grief

Twisted by Laurie Halse Anderson (17 year old boy battles depression/suicide) extremely triggering for suicide

If she doesn't mind Christian books Melody Carlson has several (including several series) with teenage girls as the main characters facing multiple different issues, but they are all VERY Christian/Faith-based..

Books about growing up and facing challenges

My niece recently graduated high school. She's been involved in an abusive relationship and has moved to a different city and is currently working. We don't talk much and I'm not sure if it's due to something I did or if it's just due to her being 18 and caring more about friends.

Anyway, I have two things planned for her Christmas gift. I want to give her some bath and body works items and I also wanted to give her some books with characters who are growing up and going through difficult things and are learning to overcome those issues.

I'm curious if anyone can make suggestions? I found one that will probably work but I was thinking of getting her two or three books (depending on price of each book)

I know my niece reads most genres so I think that she'd be likely to give any book a chance. I know she's not super picky about what she reads.
