These skew young for your audience, but I will say that whenever I'm feeling stressed, rereading The Swap by Megan Shull and Bounce by Megan Shull is incredibly soothing. They are feel good and have personal growth and satisfying resolutions. I find them extremely comforting.

Subject: [aisle] stress buster/"comfort books"??

I was asked today to consider preparing a 45 (?) minute book talk for our  junior/senior high students about books to help them deal with stress.  I call them comfort books (think comfort foods)---who do your students (or you) turn to for stress busting?
I have a list of possible resiliency building books, but I'm not sure if that's quite the angle I want to take. Right now I am open to all ideas.

I think I have a week or so to gather thoughts.

Thank you for any suggestions you care to share.
