My Students Favorite Books List

There are some books I just cannot keep on my shelves--or in my classroom for that matter--while others just sit there hardly touched.  I wanted to share some of those books that magically walk out of my classroom with Reading For Sanity followers.  My students ages range from 12-14 and come from high poverty homes.  There is quite a bit of diversity as well--this information may change how you view the lists.  These are their favorite books in no particular order:
