I literally recommend every teenager to read Generation Z by Chloe Combi. It's a whole book filled with teenagers stories and thoughts on various topics such as class, technology, sex, school etc. Some of the stories are so personal and nearly made me cry here's an interview w/ the author if you're interested in reading it! http://www.sugarscape.com/bookclub/a...-people-today/
Maybe all teenagers are young people, but not all young people are teenagers.

Philip Pulman's His Dark Materials trilogy (Northern Lights, Subtle Knife, Amber Spyglass)

All of Terry Pratchett's Discworld books

Anything by Jasper Fforde.

If you like science fiction then John Wyndham. If you like fantasy then Iain M Banks. If you like detective/legal then Michael Connolly.

Depends what you like. The Bartimaeus Trilogy by Stroud is the first thing I usually recommend to people. Fantasy but very funny.
Very good choice. That and Harry Potter. Shout out for World Without End, Ken Follett.

Artemis Fowl is good. A really good series from Horowitz would be The Diamond Brothers.

I'm not really recommending a book but an app/website that has many books in many genres called Wattpad if you haven't already heard of it. It's addicting if you're an avid reader though the stories are written by 'normal' people

The Martian.

"Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him & forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded & completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—& even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment or plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—& a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

Jeez...

I've stopped watching them a long time ago, good call here. Would have ruined the new Terminator for me as well, had I watched the trailer for that.

So you think the OP should only ever read one book? What a strange suggestion.
