On a totally random note, my mum actually works in youth mental health and I have a lot of respect for what she does to help kids, parents and teachers.
You have awesome taste in books! I’d definitely recommend looking through my underrated book posts. Specifically the fantasy and dystopia tags. There’s some really good books listed and they’re barely read.
I’ll name a few now that I think you may like:
I’d definitely recommend:
The Book Thief especially. It’s such an emotional and thought-provoking read and my favourite book of all time.
It all depends on what type of books you like personally. Some books mean a lot to me and not to others, and vice versa. I suggest you read a bit of everything and see what you like.

My brother (back when he actually read books) recommended the Gone series to me and I’ve read the first two books. I think there’s like six out now right? I suck at keeping up with series.
I’ll check them out. Thanks for the recs. :)
I feel spoiled. :’)
