The Outsider by Richard Wright, not only because it is a classic but it would probably bring discussion when thinking of total freedom, corruption, race, politics and many things that make it timeless.
The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison. I have read it sixteen times and started reading it at 14. The meaning of it has changed for me through out the years and I love how Morrison points out her frustration with the final product and the feelings she intended to elicit with Pecola. Her later examination of the book as well as gaining new life experiences gave it new life.
The Flowers in the Attic series and...The biography of Monica Lewinsky. It was one of those so horrible it was good type of things.
I recently returned to Philly after two years in Chicago for graduate school. I am prior Air Force, constant Michigander and currently a counselor and on an admissions team at a local University.
