The website, a site which serves as a resource for educators, has compiled a flowchart which lets students (or their parents if they’re looking for something to read) select a book based on questions about what they’re interested in reading. The list has 101 options for titles, from “Les Miserables” by Victor Hugo to “A Great and Terrible Beauty” by Libba Bray.

Sample options include “An Underdog Rises,” “Troubled Youth” and “Relationship Strife” under the category “Transformations,” which is listed under the Contemporary Fiction category. Those looking for a nonfiction read confront the questions “Tragedy?,” which, if they select yes, leads them to “Into Thin Air” by Jon Krakauer and “A Night to Remember” by Walter Lord.
