  1. Good to see a classic like ‘The Color Purple’ on a list like this, rather than just contemporary YA fiction (not that there’s anything wrong w/ YA, but versatility is good.) ‘The Color Purple’ is the only one I’ve actually read, but I also want to read ‘The Henna Wars’ and ‘Juliet Takes a Breath.’ Great list! 🙂
