Ummm… I’d say Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein was.
Maybe Nineteen Eighty-Four too.

So a book from my own country unfortently no English release. its a teen book called kære dødsbog (dear deathry, its a mix between death and diary, deathry)

it takes up many teen subjects most teen books dont, the book is from 2008, teen books release today dont dare talk about most of what it did, depression, suicide, sex, bullying, teen books dont talk about this subjects unleash its a dark story, which this isn’t, its a comedy, its funny to read. its an enjoyable read about a very serious topic,

The book is about a girl who is planning her suicide. because of being bullied. and we follow her last two weeks up to it,

wanna note at the end she doesn’t die, her mother discovers her in time. she gets in therapy and gets better.

I agree! Also Fahrenheit 451. Do you know why it’s called that? I do, I’m just curious to see how many others know. @Bookworms, what other books were ahead of their time?

It’s a book set in a dystopian future where books are banned. It follows Guy Montag, a firefighter. The thing is, they start the fires, not put them out. It was an amazing book. Ray Bradbury.

Jane Austen! Probably, I don’t know the whole history and such. But yeah definitely her. I just finished reading six of her completed novels!
