If you like When it Happens by Susan Colesanti

I’m glad you enjoyed When It Happens. I haven’t read it, but I have used recommendations from other librarians (and one teen reader) to find you some books that I hope you will like.

 

Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli

In this story about the perils of popularity, the courage of nonconformity, and the thrill of first love, an eccentric student named Stargirl changes Mica High School forever.

 

Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen

In alternating chapters, two teenagers describe how their feelings about themselves, each other, and their families have changed over the years.

Ready or Not by Meg Cabot (Sequel to All-American Girl)
Samantha (who saved the President in the first book and nabbed the First Son as well) tries to cope with various challenges: an annoying Queen Bee at school, worrying about whether she's ready to have sex with her boyfriend, and her trials as a national celebrity, followed and photographed at inopportune moments.
