sleep with one eye open gripping your pillow tight

So, I was already planning a cheesy 80s-esque teen book club when Jen suggested we start one...and so, we are announcing the Awesome Angst Along. (I say "we" as in Jen and me, we're co-hosting, although most of these ideas came from Jen, so she's the backbone of this deal, I'm just the queen bitch. She even came up with the name. It's deep and meaningful, but with HOPE.) So. Here's the deal:
  1. Books should cost no more than $1.50. If you choose to spend more on said books, that's up to you, but we're looking at books that are readily available on places like Amazon or used bookstores for less than a dollar.
  2. We'll start with a list of 4 or 5 books. You can read all or one or as many as you want. We want suggestions for other books. This is interactive.
  3. Feel free to share books amongst yourselves. People shouldn't get hosed or clusterfucked or anything, but if you're done with that book and want to send it to someone else, please do.
Who's in?

I'm just trying to find an angsty enough template then we can send out the invites.

And no, you're the backbone, I'm just the blogmaker.

I love the idea! I can't even find the time to read a magazine though. Let me know what you are reading and I'll try to keep up - it is too cool to pass up.

Hi, I'm new. This idea got my attention b/c I was just thinking about reading Memo to Myself When I Have a Teenage Daughter. I totally forgot about Blackbird Pond!
