All are popular, great reads. But they were also all written by teens! S. E. Hinton was only 16 when The Outsiders was published. Christopher Paolini wrote the first draft of Eragon when he was 15, and Mary Shelley was just 19 when she wrote Frankenstein. If they (and others!) can do it, why couldn't you? Happy NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and good luck writing!
