    Judy Blume is an important author whose books have resonated with so many teens (and older readers!) over the years. Tackling important issues including bullying, peer pressure and prejudice, the five books in our collection are vital reads.

    Blubber follows Linda as she reads out her class project and unwittingly becomes the victim of a sustained and cruel campaign of humiliation. Eventually, her friend Jill stands up for Linda but by the time she does, the bullies are ready to move on to their next victim - and now Linda's on their side...

    Deenie is all about the pressures of looking perfect; Iggie's House tackles neighbourhood prejudice; Here's to You, Rachel Robinson covers family conflict; and Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret is a classic story about fitting in - both at home and at school.

    Gayle Forman writes thought-provoking novels about topics including love and loss and this collection brings together three of her haunting reads - including the incredible If I Stay (adapted into a hit film starring Chloe Grace Moretz). We'd recommend them to fans of John Green or David Levithan.

    If I Stay is a book that shows how life can change in an instant. Mia is a happy 17-year-old with the world at her feet but then she's involved in an accident and has to make a very difficult choice...

    Where She Went is the follow-up to If I Stay and again follows Mia as she has another life-changing experience. This is a book that examines romance, grief and the prospect of hope. Completing our collection is Just One Day, a novel all about sheltered American good girl who forms a passionate bond with a laid-back Dutch actor.
