My suggestion for a Sizzling Summer Read? My Pick for the perfect beach book? My choice for the comatose days before us?
Jonathan is the glue that keeps his friends together. Through break-ups, wild parties, shopping sprees and a cousin who sets her sights on his friends, Jonathan is there to make sure his group stays together. Join this eclectic crew in an exciting romp through New York City as they test the definitions of friendship and love.
Continue the excitement with these Insiders novels:
Pass It On: An Insiders Novel
Take It Off: An Insiders Novel
Break Every Rule: An Insiders Novel

Books like The Coldest Winter Ever are sometimes referred to as "Urban Fiction". In the past few months I have been getting more and more requests for Urban Fiction and happily I do my best to provide TEENS with as many books as they can read.
Have you read The Coldest Winter Ever? Tell us what you think and make a recommendation, right here for other TEENS to read.
In the mean time here are some of my picks:
Imani All Mine
-Walter Dean Myers
Ballad of a Ghetto Poet
The Dying Ground
Living for the City
Too Beautiful for Words
Autobiography of My Dead Brother
-Walter Dean Myers
