Books·Apr 21, 2017Books You Loved If You Were A Sensitive Girl Growing Up In The 2000sIf it didn't make you cry... it wasn't a book. It was a stack of papers without meaning.by Mariah OxleyBuzzFeed StaffFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink 1. Stargirl Random House That moment when Stargirl wins the spoken word competition and she gets off the bus, expecting a huge cheering crowd, but there are only 3 people there?DEVASTATING. Why has this not been made into a movie yet? 2. Speak Farrar Straus Giroux Granted, I was 12 when I read this book about sexual violence and trauma, so some of the nuances were lost on me. But I still loved it! 3. A Mango-Shaped Space Little, Brown and Company The book that made a generation of girls really want to have synesthesia. 4. A Corner of the Universe Scholastic Inc. Autism. Schizophrenia. Death. That one scene on the ferris wheel. Tears are falling on my keyboard. 5. Go Ask Alice Simon & Schuster (I know, this book is way old. It was published in 1971, but, in fairness, it dominated the Barnes and Noble YA section in 2008.)In this book, a 14 year-old does acid at a party and ends up selling her body on the streets of Berkley to support her heroin addiction. And then her dirtbag friends drug her and send her to the psychiatric ward! Lol, 8th grade is so crazy. 6. The Giver Houghton Mifflin A girl never forgets her first dystopian novel... 7. Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (Book One) Random House Baileeeeeeeeeeey! 8. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (Book Two) Random House Bridget finally processes her mother's death and it's moving as hell. Love you, Bee. 9. Bridge to Terabithia Harper Collins (Published in 1977: it retained its popularity among sensitive girls well into the 2000s.)This book really ruined rope swings. 10. My Sister's Keeper Washington Square Press This book taught me how to feel. And then how to not feel anything, because there were just too many sad things happening in this book. 11. The Secret Life of Bees Penguin Random House The To Kill a Mocking Bird of our generation. 12. Give a Boy a Gun Simon & Schuster Spoiler alert: do not give a boy a gun. Never give a boy a gun. 13. Perks of Being a Wallflower Simon & Schuster When I finished this book, my aeropostale hoodie was stained with tears. 14. Esperanza Rising Scholastic Inc. TFW when you realize that time in this novel is delineated by the crops they're picking. My favorite chapter is "Las Aguacates" and this book is amazing.
