Ten books that changed Sean Beaudoin's life before he could drive

Sean Beaudoin's books include You Killed Wesley Payne, Going Nowhere Faster, which was nominated as one of YALSA's "Best Books for Young Adults," Fade to Blue, which was called "Infinite Jest for teens" by Booklist, and The Infects. His short stories and articles have appeared in numerous publications.

Beaudoin's new novel is Wise Young Fool.

One of ten books that changed his life before he could drive, as told to Teen Librarian's Toolbox:
The World According to Garp by John Irving -- I mainly flipped through for the sex parts, but also remember being pleasantly confounded by The Pension Grillparzer, which is tucked neatly inside.
Read about another book on the list.

The World According to Garp is on John Niven's list of ten of the best writers in novels.
