Help a student out!*
There was a request for help with book suggestions a few days ago, and since my knowledge of the classics is best described with the word pathetic, I’m putting the question to everyone.
I’m currently in a YA lit class with an assignment to bridge some modern YA with a classic novel. You know, a book to lead reluctant readers to the classics . . . “If you liked Speak, you’ll love [classic here]!” Any suggestions?
All I can think of is Dracula for any vampire book and Pride and Prejudice if you liked Enthusiasm. And taking a look at From Hinton to Hamlet: Building Bridges between Young Adult Literature and the Classics by Sarah K. Herz and Don Gallo.
Any other suggestions?
