"Had a special poignancy when my school cancelled A-level history"
War and Remembrance
"Absolutely devoured this in Junior High"
"Little known, little celebrated - but what a unique style"
Summer of My German Soldier (Puffin Teenage Fiction)
"Because you have to include the stuff you liked early on as well. Still counts"
"Fascinating Historical fiction"

War and Peace: 3-Volume Boxed Set (Everyman's Library Classics & Contemporary Classics)
"The ultimate. I took this out each summer vacation I was in high school, reading a book at a time, until I read the whole thing cover to cover in my final yr. All girls fall in love with Prince Andre"

"The most incredible poetry. One of a kind."
The Diary of a Young Girl: The Definitive Edition (Penguin Modern Classics)
"Mrs Rennie read out the 'Don't Condemn Me' passage in Std 7, and Mr Briggs recommended it in Form 1or 2, and I was hooked"
The God of Small Things
"I thought this was the best South Asian book I had ever read, until I came across Khaled Hosseini's 'Kite Runner'"
The Ramona Collection, Volume 1: Ramona and Her Father/Ramona the Brave/Ramona the Pest/Beezus and Ramona (Ramona Collections)
