I Capture The Castle
2.  I Capture The Castle by Dodie Smith
The list author says:
  "The emotions in this are so real. Ii can relate to every word Cassandra says. The characters are all amazing and the story had me hooked. Dodie Smith is like an almost-modern Jane Austen."

Noughts and Crosses
4.  Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman

The Princess Diaries: Sixsational
5.  The Princess Diaries: Sixsational by Meg Cabot
The list author says:

Speak (Bite)
7.  Speak (Bite) by Laurie Halse Anderson
The list author says:

The Bell Jar
8.  The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
The list author says:

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (287 customer reviews)

The Da Vinci Code (Robert Langdon)
9.  The Da Vinci Code (Robert Langdon) by Dan Brown
The list author says:
  "Has anyone not read this yet? And am I also the only person who thinks Dan Brown backed himself into a corner with his writing? Either way, very very good and very very interesting."
£5.93   Used & New from: £0.01
3.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,532 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

The Doomspell (Doomspell Trilogy, Book 1)
10.  The Doomspell (Doomspell Trilogy, Book 1) by Cliff McNish
The list author says:
  "I guess I'm a little old for this now, but it was brilliant and very scary when I was 13. You don't want to buy the trilogy though - the other two were boring."
£5.24   Used & New from: £0.01
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (40 customer reviews)

The Snow Spider Trilogy
11.  The Snow Spider Trilogy by Jenny Nimmo
The list author says:
  "I first read this aged 8 or so, and it fascinated me although I didn't really understand it. I read it again last year and it blew me away. I'm ashamed that I didn't know it was a trilogy until now."
£6.29   Used & New from: £0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

Goodnight Mr Tom
12.  Goodnight Mr Tom by Michelle Magorian
The list author says:
  "Beautiful, beautiful book. So incredibly sad. Even if you've seen the movie, you should still read the book. I always cry at it. Always. This is a bad book cover though - mine's prettier (lmao)."
Used & New from: £0.01

Jake's Tower
13.  Jake's Tower by Elizabeth Laird

Journey to the River Sea
14.  Journey to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotson
The list author says:
  "Despite everything she goes through, I still want to be Maia. You'll get lost in this book easier than you would in that Brazillian jungle Eva Ibbotson describes so well."
Used & New from: £0.01

The Abbey Girls
15.  The Abbey Girls by Elsie J. Oxenham
The list author says:
  "These books are hard to find but if you can get your hands on a copy, do. Even if it is just to sell it on for £200 if you - for some inexplicable reason - don't like it. You will love it. I promise."
Used & New from: £30.00

The Raging Quiet
16.  The Raging Quiet by Sherryl Jordan
