Young Fiction books
Young Adult isn't really just for the 12-18 age group anymore—it's the fastest growing publication category right now. In fact, 55 percent of readers who buy YA are actually over 18. If you still feel guilty picking up Harry Potter, don't.
The classification of "Young Adult" turns a lot of "mature" readers away from classics that demand extra attention, especially once you're a proper adult. You might've skipped these because they weren't on your required reading list, or maybe you just Sparknotes'd your way through high school— either way here's an unranked collection of the Best Young Adult Fiction Novels of All Time.

William P Young's book entitled The Shack2009-08-16 22:47:18 by mrbanff
This thread is for christians. I am a lawyer and am charismatic in my love for Christ. I have had two favorite books: "Mere Christianity" by C S Lewis and a "Quantum Physics and Christianity" book but I can't think of the scientist/author's name. I came across "The Shack" through a christian friend insisting that I read it. I pooh poohed it for weeks but finally purchased it. I do not usually read fiction and it takes a lot to get me to be excited about a book. This book caused me to do both.
It is a parable, a fictional account of a man who is married with five kids and while he was concentrating on one of his children during an outing, his smallest little girl "Missy" was kidnapped and brutally murdered
