i'm not goog in english, i improve and in this time i read this novel : The Outsiders S.E. Hinton
it is short novel it has modern themes there are very few cultural notes in this, which means you don’t need much background information. The sentences are short and easy to understand
this novel narrates the adventures of a young man with gangs me i liked
I'd like to recommend the books of Paulo Coelho. though it's not a type novel but they are good to read.
