issues that Enger has towards morality and his life.

5. Homeland by R.A. Salvatore

Homeland is the first edition of a series that was written by R. A.

never is going to fit in so he has to do all of his fighting on his

though his family and society expects him to do it. The book talks
about a very dark world that a lot of teenagers are going to be able
to relate to based on the isolation of Drizzi. Hopefully, they will
