In My Mailbox: Classics of teen literature

This is my first In My Mailbox post! It's a very nice one, too, because I treated myself to a big order at Powell's. I was out of Paperback Swap credits, and, well, it was a holiday thing. =) I can't feel too bad when the median price for a book was $4.00!

I've read a few of these already, but most I've just not gotten around to reading. Even the ones I've read I could stand to read again (Blood and Chocolate, Speak, The Outsiders). Some books I'll be reading for this challenge are not on this list because I already own them.

I'm really looking forward to these books!  I started The Yearling yesterday.
