I just read The Goldfinch, by Donna Tartt. I think some of you high school readers who appreciate a really literary novel might like this one; the protagonist, Theo, goes from age 13 to his late 20s in the course of the book, and it's been described by several reviewers as a coming-of-age novel. It's a big commitment, though--it's 771 pages long, and it's a BIG book (i.e., large pages) as well. If any of you read it, we would LOVE to publish your review!
Here's my fan art:
