9 Adult Books with Teen Appeal These adult novels—historical, thriller, fantasy, and more—are sure to appeal to teens looking outside of YA fare. Teens are far from one-size-fits-all, and the young adult genre does not always appeal to teen readers. Our Adult Books 4 Teens recommendations serve to provide librarians with recently published adult titles that have strong crossover appeal. The following books range in genre, subject matter, and tone, including fantasy, thriller, historical, realistic fiction, magical realism, campy horror, and science fiction titles, as well as books that blend together a number of different genres. These novels cover an array of subjects and reflect a wide range of teenage interests, including sports, art, creative writing, mathematics, and history; all are accessible yet skillfully told. Given that teens do not always want to read a book with a main character their own age, these novels feature children, teens, and adults.

Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) YALSA's Teen Book Finder is a free online database and app to help teens, parents, librarians and library staff, educators, and anyone who loves YA literature access nearly 4,000 titles recognized YALSA's awards and lists on their smartphone.

Seuss’s illustrations were “steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes,” said the school in a letter to Trump. This isn’t the first time that Seuss’s books have caused controversy. Deborah B. Ford, Director of Library Outreach @ JLG's LiveBinders Shelf Author of binders: Deborah B.
