Some Good Teen Novels

Assalamualaikum =)
Are you a middle-school student? a high school student? Need something interesting, funny, romantic-love stories, easy but worth reading? Then i'm sure you'd love these books!
Here are some teen novels i enjoy the most. Well i hope you'll be interested to read these and make your holiday fun! =)

1. PRINCESS DIARIES by Meg Cabot
Consist of ten volumes. The first volume was published in 2000 titled The Princess Diaries and the final volume was published in 2009 titled The Princess Diaries: Forever Princess. In 2001, the series was brought to the big screen as The Princess Diaries, and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement in 2004 which Meg Cabot believes that these movies help her becoming success as they boost her book sales. S is the 1st best-selling author according to New York Times.

"This is a Diaries of a teenage girl who in addition to having to deal with normal teen issues, has just found out that she is a Princess of a small country. Now she has to pass Algebra, take princess classes and lie to all her friends about who she really is. This is a light hearted fun book to read about your everyday princess." Rachel, Resident Scholar (http://www.allreaders.com/topics/info_5308.asp)

2. MAGIC IN MANHATTAN by Sarah Mlynowski
Consist of four volumes so far: 1) Bras and Broomsticks, 2)Frogs and French Kisses, 3)Spells and Sleeping Bags, and 4)Parties and Potions. The first volume was published in 2005. It's already published and translated in more than 10 countries, included Indonesia, Japan, Italy, France, and Spain. The 4th volume was first published in 2008.

"This isn't just another breezy teen read. Mlynowski has a real ear for dialogue, and she displays a keen understanding of teen mores as she pokes fun at high-school cliques. Several lovely scenes break up the comedy, including one in which klutzy Rachel revels in her newfound coordination and the pleasure of dancing. Rachel is sassy, self-absorbed, shy and insecure, and her concerns will be comfortably familiar to readers. " Booklist (http://www.sarahm.com/YA%20Site/YA_sm4_details_bras.htm)
