A Separate Peace
By John Knowles
Awards: Rosenthal Family Foundation Award, National Book Award Finalist for Fiction
I would recommend this book to anyone who like classics or historical books. If you want a story about teenagers that isn't about getting a boyfriend or failing math class, A Separate Peace is definitely a good choice. The one bad thing about this book is that the sentences were sometimes too long. If you can't understand wordy phrasing, this might not be the best book for you.

The Secret History is also about friends at a boarding school.
Peace Breaks Out
Peace Breaks Out is another book by John Knowles, set in the same school as A Separate Peace.
