Recommendations for my daughter

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a book for my daughter for a school assignment.  I know there's plenty that would suit, but can't seem to think of anything.  She needs a book about 'coping with the unpredictableness of life makes us stronger.'

TIA

 

Edit to add: She's 16, so YA or adult would be good.

I would definitely recommend I am the Messenger by Markus Zusak. It fits the criteria perfectly, although it's hard to explain exactly why without giving away what happens in the story! It has a brilliant message about ordinary people's ability to be extraordinary, and to learn from their past and their mistakes and keep going. And it has a really good mystery element, which really makes you want to read the whole thing in one go! It also won the Michael Printz award for excellence in Young Adult literature  :smile:

The Fault in Our Stars was the one I was thinking of but I wasn't 100% sure.
