I have a lower intermediate English student who is looking for reading material for her level. Her reading preferences are spiritual journeys, fictional or real voyages of personal discovery, philosophical, etc.
As I don’t share her preferences, I am at a loss to direct her to books for her ESL reading level on these subjects. Any suggestions?

The first book that springs to mind is Paulo Coehlo’s “The Alchemist”, but although it’s available as a reader, I think it would be too challenging for a low intermediate-level student.
My advice to students is always to find a book they enjoy in their own language, and then source the same (perhaps as a graded reader) in English. That way, they can focus on the language rather than struggling with the story.
