John and Margaret Class Student Book Collection Contest
This is Gianina Hatton's submission essay, annotated bibliography, and annotated wishlist for the 2017 John and Margaret Class Student Book Collection Contest, which won second place.
Gianina is a freshman at Chapman University, majoring in Communications.
From the author: "This collection is something very close to me, the characters in these novels and the music included have been with me since middle school. I have collected these books off of dying thrift stores and pristine Barnes and Noble’s. The protagonists in them are seemingly the worst characters: flawed, depressed, even selfish at times, but at the end of the day they are relatable."
