Coup de Coeur

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde is definitely one of those great classics which will impress your teacher. It is the beautiful tale of a man, Dorian Gray, whose own vanity and narcissism leads him to wish that his portrait (painted by a close friend) bear the burden of age and sins, allowing him to remain forever young.
The elaborate style of Oscar Wilde makes it a pleasure to read but more importantly, I think it is an excellent choice for teenagers. Why? Because it is an age where our appearance and what other people think seem quite important and reading this book helps to put these things back into perspective, it did for me.

Alexia Bedat, Reviewer, Alexia's Picks

Dorian is a good-natured young man until he falls in with the immoral Lord Henry and discovers the power of his own exceptional beauty. As he gradually sinks deep into a world of selfish luxury, he apparently remains physically unchanged and untouched by age. But up in his attic, hidden behind a curtain, his portrait tells a different story.
