Riot Recommendation: Contemporary Literature for High School Students

This latest request for recommendations was sent to us on Facebook. Here’s the question:

One of my fellow English teachers is searching for recommendations for her Contemporary Literature class. This is a Sr. elective. I’ve taught this class before. We usually read Slaughterhouse-Five, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Einstein’s Dreams, Kite Runner, and In Cold Blood. Could you please post a request on your page for recommendations?
Love the website!
