Teen Reviewer:

Teen reviewer Margaret recently finished Impulse, by Ellen Hopkins. Here is her review:

Impulse is another work by Ellen Hopkins that depicts the lives of three teenagers, all of whom have very troubling lives and secrets they've never shared. I read this book in a matter of a few days, and just couldn't put it down! The ending is usually sad in most books by Ellen Hopkins, but this ending was bittersweet. 

Margaret also enjoyed A Storm of Swords, which is the third book of George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones series: 

"I love the characters and the intensely complicated storyline. The entire series is realistic and too difficult to put into a simple summary. But the author is brilliant and could never be given enough credit" 

Margaret ended up reading A Storm of Swords because a friend suggested it to her--and now she's recommending it to you! However, she does add that, because of some content, this book might be more appropriate for older teens than younger.
