Please suggest some Young Adult books?
Topic: Book prophecy of the sisters
June 19, 2019 / By Nicholas Question:
I am desperately in need of a good book, but every other YA book I see is about vampires [ugh].
I really like books that are fantasy [but NOT too 'out there', like with fairies or elves or things like that].
I really liked the Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink. It took place in the late 1800s, and was kind of dark/Gregorian.
I also enjoy books like Unwind by Neal Shusterman and Twisted, Chains, and Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.
I liked Ophelia by Lisa Klein, a retelling of Hamlet from Ophelia's perspective.
I love The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo, but that's about the only old/classic book I like.
Please do not suggest -
• Twilight, or pretty much anything that contains vampires
• A teen 'drama' about some shallow cheerleader who, like, totally dates all the hawt guys
• House of Night novels, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, or Narnia
Oh, and I've already read the Hunger Games, and wasn't too fond of it.
I've read Eragon, too, before anyone suggests that.

Originally Answered: What career would you suggest?
You're in 9th grade. Yes, think about your future career, but there's no need to make a decision and set it in stone for years yet.
For now, continue preparing for college by taking a variety of college prep courses: English, social studies, sciences, math, computers. Choose electives that allow you to explore your interests. Do class papers and projects on career-related topics that interest you. Also, read books by people in the various professions that intrigue you.
One thing: You mentioned an interest in the sciences but your careers list doesn't lean that way. STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) careers are big right now, so you may want to look more at some of these careers.
Since you describe yourself as nerdy and say you love being around sciency people, I bet you'll love college. Choose one that is more of an intellectual, scholarly school than a party school. Think about becoming a professor. Professors do lifelong research and publishing as well as teaching, and they often dooutside consulting work as well.

For a young adult/teen Meg Cabot's young adult books. She is the best author. Also best selling. She wrote tons of books including the Princess Diaries (Movies based on her books), Mediator (upcoming movie), 1-800-Missing (TV show based on her books), All-American Girl (up coming movie), Jinx, Airhead and more. She has adult books too, so you can grow with her.
If you want more info or any of the authors website's email me.
You should use the website, What Should I read Next. This website will make perfect suggestions based on what you have read.

I liked A Prayer for Owen Meany a whole bunch, and I am currently starting The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne. Maybe you'll like these two. I need to catch up on reading myself.

The Hunger Games by Susanne Collins (REALLY great series)
Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer (Amazing, phenomenal book)
Bloody Jack by L.A. Meyer (Great series up until the sixth book, then it just goes into a loop)
If you're into fantasy, you should try books by Diana Wynne Jones. Brilliant author. She wrote Howl's Moving Castle and such other novels. Possibly one of the best fantasy writers of all time.
All fantastic Young Adult books.
And if you like adult books, you should try The Lovely Bones, Wicked, Les Miserables, Stephen King of course, etc...
Hope this helps!

Originally Answered: What radio station do you suggest?
Radio stations are local to where you live - FM stations usually within 30-50 miles of the antenna is their service area. AM stations may broadcast a bit further, close to 100 miles in some cases. You may want to start looking at AM stations for more news and talk- radio. Audience participation shows often only appear in the evening, but some play throughout the day.
You might want to check out http://www.radiolocator.com plugin your location and it will return a list of stations that you might be able to receive. In addition, you may find some on the internet, but most are more music oriented, not necessarily talk, or audience call in shows.
College or school radio stations are often aligned with NPR National Public Radio and their various possible shows, national news, and commentaries as well as educational programs and a more eclectic mix of programming that most commercial stations will not carry. College stations are often found in the lower 88.1-99.9 MHz area of the FM frequencies.
