Books for Teens

{
}

If your teenager/young adult enjoys reading look for challenging subject matter and suggest a wide-range of books from new adult to classic novels, contemporary fiction and popular non-fiction to help develop their reading tastes. For girls and boys who find reading hard work short stories can be very liberating and genre based fiction may appeal. Encourage reluctant teen readers to explore books such as Rick Riordan’s adventure series, Percy Jackson and Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series.
