愛閱讀!均頭國際學校2021推薦書單


深入閱讀一些優秀的小說(如推薦紐約時報暢銷書)能讓青少年感受到閱讀的樂趣!因此,我們向IG(9年級)以上的學生推薦以下的這些書籍。

Deep Dive into some Great Novels for Teenagers (As recommended by the New York Times Bestsellers) Happy Reading! We recommended these books for IG+.


什麼樣的書或故事能吸引不願意讀書的青少年和讀者?《紐約時報》作家瑪麗亞·魯索說:「我的嗅覺測試很簡單:青少年自己認為哪些小說精彩絕倫? 他們會推薦哪些給他們的朋友?他們想要擁有哪些書,而不單單是借書?作為一個成年人,因此作為一個入侵者,要想弄明白這一點需要進行些偵查工作。」給青少年看的小說必須真實可信。青少年必須能夠認同在他們成長的特定階段和自己的人生旅程中的角色。

What type of book or story can engage reluctant teenagers and readers? New York Times writer Maria Russo says “My smell test for this list was simple: Which novels do teenagers themselves think are incredible? Which ones do they recommend to their friends? Which ones do they want to own, rather than borrow? As a grown-up, and therefore an interloper, figuring this out took a little detective work.”

Novels for teenagers have to be relatable and real. The teenagers have to be able to identify with the characters at particular stages in their growth and own life journey.


01 ‘The Hate U Give,’ by Angie Thomas


近年來,這本書一直是暢銷書排行榜上的主要讀物:它提供了一個理想的故事,幫助青少年思考正義、種族主義、行動主義和個人責任等問題。文筆朗朗上口,節奏適當,字裡行間迸發出情感和智慧。在一所以白人為主的私立學校,一名黑人學生目睹一名警察向她手無寸鐵的朋友開槍後,她必須決定是否要站出來為他和她的社區尋求正義。在它的影片中也有許多吸引人的角色和戲劇性的時刻。(這部電影很棒—但也不要錯過了閱讀這篇精彩的文章。)

This has been a staple of best seller lists for few years now, and for good reasons: It provides an ideal story to help teenagers think through questions of justice, racism, activism and personal responsibility, and it’s got catchy writing, perfect pacing and emotional smarts to boot. After a black student at a mostly white private school witnesses a police officer shoot her unarmed friend, she has to decide whether or not to speak up and pursue justice for him and for her community. There are also many appealing characters and dramatic moments. (The movie is great too — but don’t let it take the place of reading this gem.)

02 ‘Dear Evan Hansen: The Novel,’ by Val Emmich


沒錯,這是一部以小說形式上映的百老匯音樂劇,很成功。無論是在舞台上還是在現實生活中,這個故事都巧妙地剖析了青少年與流行度和社交媒體之間備受折磨的關係。一個孤獨、焦慮的青少年根據治療師的建議給自己寫便條。其中一個落入了一個深陷困境的同學手中,導致他自殺了。在一定程度上,為了幫助這對失去親人的父母,Evan假裝他和這個男孩很親密,但他在秘密帶來的重壓下痛苦掙扎著。這部小說填補了只有在音樂劇中才暗指的場景,並充實了次要人物。

Yes, it’s a hit Broadway musical, in the form of a novel — and it works. Both onstage and on the page, the story expertly dissects teenagers’ tortured relationships with popularity and social media. A lonely, anxious teenager writes notes to himself on the advice of his therapist. One of them falls into the hands of a deeply troubled classmate who commits suicide. Partly to help the bereaved parents, Evan pretends he and the boy were close, but struggles under the weight of his secret. The novel fills in scenes only alluded to in the musical, and fleshes out peripheral characters.

03 ‘I’ll Give You the Sun,’ by Jandy Nelson


這部感人肺腑、扣人心弦的小說嚴肅對待青少年的情感生活,既不多愁善感,也不陰鬱。一個名叫Noah的有藝術細胞的男孩講述了一半的故事,他那魯莽的雙胞胎妹妹Jude講述了另一半。兄弟姐妹很親密,直到一場家庭鬧劇把他們分開,他們必須找到回到彼此身邊的路。每個人都經歷了一段令人興奮的浪漫—Noah和另一個男孩一起用心努力去找到生活中真正存在熱情的地方。

This heartfelt, breathlessly told novel takes teenagers’ emotional lives seriously without being either sappy or gloomy. An artistic boy named Noah narrates half the story and his daredevil twin sister, Jude, tells the other half. The siblings are close until a family drama wrenches them apart, and they must find their way back to each other. Each experiences an exhilarating romance — Noah’s is with another boy — and an earnest struggle to figure out where their passions in life truly lie

04 ‘The Poet X,’ by Elizabeth Acevedo


這本華麗的、獲獎的詩歌小說講述了一個安靜的多米尼加裔美國女孩的故事,她來自一個宗教家庭。她在筆記本上寫下了她的挫折,並在她加入學校的大滿貫詩歌俱樂部時學會了說出她的心聲。這是一個貼心又充滿禁忌的浪漫且鼓舞人心的故事,讓讀者們尋找自己的創造性的心聲。尤其是當它與人們的現實生活相結合的時候,這本書經久不衰的流行是一個強有力的提醒:青少年沈迷於詩歌。

This gorgeous, award-winning novel in verse tells the story of a quiet Dominican-American girl from a religious family who scribbles her frustrations in a notebook and learns to speak her truth when she joins her school’s slam poetry club. There’s a sweet, forbidden romance and an inspiring story of finding your own creative voice. The book’s enduring popularity is a powerful reminder that teenagers groove on poetry, especially when it’s geared to the realities of their lives.

05 ‘We Were Liars,’ by E. Lockhart


這是一部巧妙的心理驚悚片,同時也是一部富有洞察力的家庭傳奇。一個名叫Cadence的享有特殊待遇的少女講述了一個讓人上癮的神秘故事。她在她母親幾代人擁有的一座小島上度過夏天。島上出了某種問題,一場突如其來的悲劇加深了這個謎團。—直到一個令人震驚的結局解釋了一切,這讓讀者有想從頭再讀一遍的慾望。

This one is a clever psychological thriller and an insightful family saga all in one. A privileged teenager named Cadence, who spends summers on an island owned by generations of her mother’s family, narrates an addictively enigmatic story. Something is amiss on the island, and a sudden tragedy only deepens the mystery — until all is explained in a shocking ending that will make you want to start the book all over again.

06 ‘The Sun Is Also a Star,’ by Nicola Yoon


這部小說以最好的方式講述了一段令人興奮的愛情故事。Natasha是一個有科學頭腦的牙買加女孩,然而幾小時後她就會因為文書錯誤而被驅逐出境。Daniel是一個韓裔美國人,他一直都是「好兒子」,即使這與他詩性背道而馳。他們在過馬路的時候相遇並吸引了對方的目光,他們—還有我們—想象他們一起工作的未來場景。

This novel delivers a romance that is mind-blowing in the best way. Natasha is a science-minded Jamaican girl who is hours away from being deported because of a paperwork error. Daniel is a Korean-American guy who has always been “the good son,” even when it goes against his poetic nature. They meet and catch one others’ eyes while literally crossing the street, and they — and we — have to picture all the improbable ways their futures could work together.
