Both Quita and I see some of our “good” students do something silly all because their friends told them to. Peer pressure does not discriminate; it doesn’t care about your gender, race, or class. As teens, we were ALL susceptible to it. And here are some novels that take on this topic:
- Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers
- Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli
- Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
- Freefall by Ariela Anhalt
- Carlos is Gonna Get It by Kevin Emerson
