Top ten books to get you through high school

James Dawson, author of dark teen thriller Hollow Pike, grew up in West Yorkshire, writing imaginary episodes of Doctor Who.

One entry on his list of the top ten books to get you through high school, as told to the Guardian:
Carrie by Stephen King / Matilda by Roald Dahl

Nothing got me through school more than the glimmer of hope that I might one day develop telekinetic powers and kill everyone. Luckily for my classmates, that never happened. Two similar stories, with very similar heroes – you'll be rooting for both Carrie and Matilda right up to the equally moving (albeit quite different) finales.
Read about the other books on the list.
