Even though information is just one click away on the Internet, nothing compares to the wisdom you pick up by reading a good book. Even fictional works have some sort of life lesson embedded in them!

For those who are in their late teens, these books might be worth a read:

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry 

Plot: "Few stories are as widely read and as universally cherished by children and adults alike as The Little Prince."

The Little Prince barely needs any introduction, and it's a good read for any age. If you enjoy an almost poetic storytelling, this literary classic is worth a shot.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares

Plot: "Once there was a pair of pants. Just an ordinary pair of jeans. But these pants, the Traveling Pants, went on to do great things. This is the story of the four friends—Lena, Tibby, Bridget, and Carmen—who made it possible."

If you loved the movie version, then reading the OG reference material is the next best move. Then read the next books in the series, especially if you're missing your friends a little extra.

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

Plot: "A beautiful and distinguished family. A private island. A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy. A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive. A revolution. An accident. A secret. Lies upon lies. True love. The truth."

If you're a fan of mystery novels, this book is worth a try. Let's see if you figure out the ending before you reach it! And remember, "if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE."

Coming Up for Air by Miranda Kenneally

Plot: "All of Maggie's focus and free time is spent swimming. She's not only striving to earn scholarships—she's training to qualify for the Olympics. It helps that her best friend, Levi, is also on the team, and cheers her on. But Levi's already earned an Olympic tryout, so Maggie feels even more pressure to succeed. And it's not until Maggie's away on a college visit that she realizes how much of the 'typical' high school experience she's missed by being in the pool."

If you're up for a relatable best-friends-to-lovers type of story, Coming Up for Air might be worth a shot.

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

Plot: "Aristotle is an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special friendship—the kind that changes lives and lasts a lifetime."

The novel focuses on the story two teens, Aristotle and Dante, and how they realize that they're more similar than they think. They develop a friendship and learn more about themselves through it. P.S. The book has also won LOTS of awards.
