Random House Childrens Books A Great and Terrible Beauty (Paperback)
This was the book that caused me to keep reading. If I hadn't of stumbled upon this book back in middle school, I probably wouldn't have a love for books that I do today.
I probably shouldn't have started this after reading an epic fantasy series; it just seemed simple, in contrast. I'd say great for tween to teen.
This was one of my favourite books when I was in my early teens. It has a great mix of mystery, magic, romance and feature strong female characters. I loved that it was a teen book that dealt with mature subjects. It also got me interested in Tennyson - any book that makes a 13 year old start reading 19thC poetry is a good thing.
