ABOUT A TALE OF HIGHLY UNUSUAL MAGIC:
Kai and Leila are both finally having an adventure. For Leila, that means a globe-crossing journey to visit family in Pakistan for the summer; for Kai, it means being stuck with her crazy great-aunt in Texas while her mom looks for a job. In each of their bedrooms, they discover a copy of a blank, old book called The Exquisite Corpse. Kai writes three words on the first page—and suddenly, they magically appear in Leila's copy on the other side of the planet. Kai's words are soon followed by line after line of the long-ago, romantic tale of Ralph T. Flabbergast and his forever-love, Edwina Pickle. As the two take turns writing, the tale unfolds, connecting both girls to each other, and to the past, in a way they never could have imagined.
A heartfelt, vividly told multicultural story about fate and how our stories shape it.

I'd have to give that honor to Jodie Piccoult's Nineteen Minutes. It's abut a school shooting, and is probably even more relevant now than when it was first published. I feel like I take my words and my actions much more seriously now.
A book that changed how I looked at life is definitely Animal Farm by George Orwell. It gave deeper meaning to government and the way government can sometimes run.
The book that changed my life, from an early age, was TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD by Harper Lee. I already had the idea of being a lawyer in my head - I can't remember a time when I *didn't* want to be a lawyer - but that book cemented it for me. It also pushed me toward social justice issues, and had a big hand in shaping my values and the things I care about. It made me want to be a better person, to always root out injustice and work for those without a voice. It also helped me understand the importance of not blindly following and believing what others tell you - the importance of finding things out for yourself. I re-read the book evwry few years and I feel something new each and every time.
The Narnia books have completely changed me. In fact, without them, I do not know if I would have ever actually gotten into reading. My parents used to read them to me as a child before I could read by myself, and ever since then, they have been a part of my life. When I do not want to think about anything or am bored and looking for something to do, I will pick up one of the books and lose myself in the writing once again.
