Heading to college this fall and looking for your next read? Our alumni have a few awesome recs...

๐Ÿ“” Shreya (CU '23) recommends The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, a poignant but easy-to-read modern classic! The story follows Santiago, a boy searching for treasure in the pyramids of Gizaโ€”while building relationships and discovering himself along the way. The Alchemist explores themes of perseverance and appreciating the journey, which makes it a perfect read for any incoming college students.

๐Ÿ“– Mariem (CU '22) suggests Saints and Misfits by S.K. Ali. As the title may suggest, the book tackles identity and belonging through the eyes of Janna, a Muslim American teenager. Janna faces harassment from other students while struggling with balancing her romantic interests with her religious beliefs and navigating her parents' divorce. Saints and Misfits is a great dive into the raw, real teenage experience, so pick up a copy at your local library before heading off to school!

๐Ÿ“š Indrakshi (CU '21) recommends The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. Even if you've read it in an english class before, this classic is well worth revisiting or experiencing for the first time! This book has a unique take on growing up, told from the perspective of a 16-year-old who has just been expelled from school. Widely considered one of the great American novels, The Catcher in the Rye is an awesome coming-of-age read.

๐Ÿ“˜ Lillian (CU '20) suggests On a Sunbeam by Tillie Walden. A graphic novel set in space, this unique story about growing up and finding love is a must-read for anyone trying to find themself. Emotional, succinct, and poignant, On a Sunbeam packs a punch with its visual storytelling and relatable characters, making it a great book for anyone starting their next chapter (pun definitely intended).

Whether you want to challenge yourself with some tough topics this summer, or just kick back and enjoy a book with a relatable protagonist, we hope you'll enjoy these recommendations!
