Great Reads Come In All Flavors For Young Adults

Great Reads Come In All Flavors For Young Adults

Times have never been better for adventurous teenage readers leaving children’s books behind. The Young Adult category includes every kind of book: romance, biography, mystery…, you name it.
We’ve created a 2010 Young Adult Awards list and posted it with all our other lists at the New, Best & Fun tab on our catalog page. If you’re a reader (even if you’re not a teen) you will find books to enjoy there. Whether it’s a biography of Janis Joplin, a story of a 12-year-old girl weathering Hurricane Katrina in the New Orleans Ninth Ward, or books from settings in foreign or future worlds, these are book that can transport you.
If you know a teen who should be reading but isn’t, nudge them toward the books on this list because they have been judged the best in the Young Adult category.
