You have so many great books to read on your list. I read Great Expectations in middle school and it wasn’t my favorite. Maybe now I would understand it more.

The Diary of Anne Frank was one of my favorites. I was looking for this book a few weeks ago because I would love to read it again.

I am also going to have to check out Friend Request too.
