    Grace

    I read a book called Grace, by Richard Paul Evans. It was an AMAZING book that just left me in tears at the end. Same way with Bridge to Terabythia. I cried so hard at the end of that.

    The Lovely Bones By Alice Sebold And A Rose For The Crown By Kate Bywood

    Are just the most recent. There are tons more that have made me cry. It should be noted that the movie version of "the Lovely Bones" is terrible and does the book no justice at all.

    To Kill a Mockingbird.

    It really highlighted the social issues during that time period and displayed the cruel nature of human beings. You can't judge a book by it's cover. Cry, the Beloved Country was a good one too.

    When I read the Lord of The Flies

    for homework, it made me bawl my eyes out. I hated the part when Piggy died considering that he was the most sensible character in the book besides Ralph and Simon.

    after reading The Glass Castle by Jennette Wall I started crying. Something about how the entire book was like going through the life of a family and watching their life flash by.
