Filipvel, I agree somewhat with you, but many people will be offended by that comment, and I think that is something you should keep to yourself.

dragona13, I understand that but there is no law that says that I can't express my opinion

I understand that as well. I'm just warning you that even with you freedom of speech, there can be consequences. (not necessarily in this situation but you know what I mean.)

Vampire Academy series. It's about two best friends, one full vampire with powers, the other half human half vampire. The half vampire has a bond with the full vampire in the sense that she can feel her thoughts and feelings. There are 6 books in the series. I swear, you won't be able to put these books down!

On imdb.com, there's already a cast. Shailene Woodley (current MJ on TASM) is playing Tris.

***Whoops, I thought this was about Divergent (which is going to be a movie too).

There IS a listing for Vampire Academy on imdb.com, although there is no listed cast.

Sorry--- my mistake for not paying better attention.

You should read The Clockwork Three. It is about three different children who live a rough and terrible life. There is a boy, Giuseppe who is originally from Italy and now lives in the United States. There is also a girl named Hannah who lives with her family and has to work in order to support them because her parents are very ill. Frederick is a clock maker's apprentice and he is a very intelligent young boy who also has his own problems in life. These three children's stories tie together and they end up meeting each other later in the book. They each help and solve each other's problems so they can all live a better life.

Ashes-kinda a zombie apocalypse but better. Kinda gory......
Maze runner series- also violent, kids are trapped in a puzzle for experiments, it gets better
Uglies- a futuristic society where you get a surgery at 16 to become beautiful
Those are a few of my favorites, hope I helped :-)

Kissed by an Angel series by Elizabeth Chandler.

It's about a girl, Ivy, who falls in love with the captain (i think. it's been a while since i read the series.) of the swim team, Tristan, and on one of their dates he passes away in a car accident. Ivy had used to believe in angels, but since Tristan had died in the accident, Ivy began to believe that the angels weren't real otherwise they would have saved his life. However, Tristan becomes an angel, and he is given a job, which is to protect Ivy from extreme danger, but he can only do that if Ivy believes that angels exist.

The story's a lot more complex, with best friends and a wedding and Ivy's stepbrother and such, but I think that it's a great book, and it's not necessarily religious, it just has angels and a couple mentions of God. It's okay if you don't read it because of that, but I think you should give it a chance.

The Chaos Walking trilogy --- Patrick Ness; two teens run for their lives to escape a terrible man who wants to run their recently-settled planet, and they must warn others--including incoming settlers; sci-fi

Acceleration --- Graham McNamee; a boy finds the diary of a demented man and realizes three women are in danger of becoming the man's victims

Unwind --- Neal Shusterman; parents have the option of having their kids 'unwound' which is basically having them taken apart and letting people have their organs and body parts (story follows three different teens who are about to be unwound)

Teen Inc. --- Stephen Petrucha; a corporation is raising a teenager (pretty funny)

Struck by Lightning --- Chris Colfer; about an unappreciated overachiever in a small-minded town

The Homelanders series --- Andrew Klavan; a boy who lost a year of his memory finds himself a member of a terrorist group and the accused murderer of his former best friend

Divergent --- Veronica Roth
Percy Jackson series --- Rick Riordan (?)

I have many more suggestions, but there's not enough room.
