What books have you enjoyed recently that you wished you would have read as a young adult?
I’m grateful for the books I did read as a young adult: The Outsiders and Rumble Fish by S.E Hinton, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape by Peter Hedges and Catch-22 by Joseph Heller.
The interesting thing is that I was given Catch-22 as a 16-year-old and couldn’t read it. The point is, it was shown to us by our high school teacher of the time. They knew that a lot of us wouldn’t get through it, but we might later on; we knew it was there. I’m grateful to those teachers for that – for having the courage to give us books we might not like at the time, but would appreciate later on.
