I find "Don't tell me what to do" very interesting.
It's about a boy, Tom, who leaves his house to be a jockey (a horse's rider). In the road a man called Master, sees him and takes him to do a little job. Tom accepts because he needs money to be a jockey. In Master's house, the boy falls in love with a girl who is working for Master. This girl helps Tom to practise to do the job in the pool...
It's not a long story so you can read it in class and you can't predict what is going to happen.
