    Give it a try, if you have the time.
    This love story type of a book is through teenager Miles Halter as he enrolls at a boarding school to try to gain a deeper perspective on life which turns into your typical love story. This book at first starts slow and boring but as you read into and if you understand it, it becomes engaging. This book probably appeals more to older students then younger one but they need to really pay attention. Also suggested: Papertowns

    I originally read this book in 8th grade, and to be completely honest, I didn't really care for it that much at the time. I thought it was slow and boring. But now that I'm going into 11th grade, I've reread this book dozens of times and I enjoy it more each time. I understand it better: the messages behind the characters' actions and words. I think once someone reaches high school, or maybe even college, analyzing and really thinking about how people approach things becomes easier. In my case, this book did. I liked how the book isn't exactly about romance, but more about growing up and dealing with death as an adolescent. Also suggested: Me Before You
