  • Heather C.

    Do Hard Things by Alex and Brett Harris and Counted Worthy by Leah Good are both good books. :)

    • Emma

      I have read Do Hard Things and plan on reading Counted Worthy soon! :)

    • I really wanna read Counted Worthy!!

      • Haven Asnip

        You should! It’s really good!

        • KT

          It’s soooooo good!!! one of my all time favorites!

      • Haylie

        I believe it took me four hours to read it after I got it, cover to cover. I seriously could not put it down.

        • Olivia R.

          Now you guys are making me want to read it! :)

          • Haylie

            READ IT. ;P

          • Olivia R.

            I will. :)

        • I wanna read it!!!!!

          • Haylie

            You totally should!

        • Heather C.

          Same!!! I got it on my kindle a few days before some plane flights, so I told my sister I was only going to read a few pages to see what it was like, then save it for the flight. I think we both finished it in a day or two (we were super busy). I ended up reading it a second time on the plane!

          • Haylie

            Haha that’s awesome XD

    • Regan Seba

      I was gonna say that! 😀

  • I’m with Heather. Those are pretty good ones. I also loved be the change and generation change by zack hunter. And hiding in the light by rifqa bary is super good too. (I don’t think she was a teen when she wrote it bit the story is about her as a teen. It is incredible.
    I would fire for you is another really good one. It’s about a teen guy that died due to an illness he contracted on the mission field. It is written by his parents for teens, with many excerpts from his siblings and personal journals.

    • Haylie

      “I Would Die For You” sounds really interesting. Do you have the names of the parents who wrote the book, by chance? :)

      • I do! Brent and Deanna Higgins

        • Haylie

          Thanks, Delaney :)

  • Other than DHT, Orphan’s Song by Gillian Adams. It’s fiction, but it’s really good.

  • Regan Seba

    Counted Worthy by Leah E. Good is good. DHT, obviously. I Am Malala is a great book about Malala Yousafzai, the girl who was shot by the Taliban for standing up for girl’s education in Pakistan. She is 17 or 18 now, and is the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner ever. Popular, by Maya Van Wagenen is a good book. It’s about a girl in southern Texas who breaks the mold at her middle school. It was on the award winners bookshelf this year and is pretty funny.

    • Haha, I was late to the party but I started I Am Malala for the first time last week.

      • Olivia R.

        How is it so far? I have been wanting to read that one.

    • Angela Pycroft

      I read that too! Great book and very eye-opening.

  • Mally

    This is sorta off topic, but a song we’re singing in choir was written by a junior in highschool. Its in Swahili and its called Sisi ni Afrika. *walks away* 😅

  • Olivia R.

    Besides DHT, I loved The Stolen Princess, by Katherine Wilson. It was a wonderful piece of fiction. :)

  • Joy Swen

    Upon Wings as Eagles. By Joy Swen. :) But alas it is not published yet and probably won’t be for quite some time.

    In reality, I can’t think of any besides Do Hard Things.

  • Angela Pycroft

    Do Hard Things, Start Here, and Counted Worthy. There are probably some others on my shelf; those are just the best ones that come to mind!

    • Angela Pycroft

      Oh I also read I Am Malala, which is about a Pakistani girl who supports education for girls during the reign of jihad. Very good and eye-opening. It is a true story and autobiography.

  • Austin Koontz

    “Do Hard Things” is an amazing book one of my all time favorites!!!!!

  • Piragi

    I have to say, I only know two book by teens: Do Hard Things, and Start Here. Both by Alex and Brett Harris.
