New Teen Fiction
Teens have more reading choices than ever before. Our New Teen Fiction list including recently published and purchased titles is always changing. This is the place to find what's new in young adult literature at the library.
Don't Touch by Rachel Wilson distinguishes itself from other high school romances with a main character who suffers from anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder. She obsessively avoids physical contact with other people, which makes it difficult to form relationships. Egg & Spoon by Gregory Maguire is a Prince and Pauper style novel in which two Russian girls, Elena and Ekaterina, switch places. School Library Journal's starred review said the book is "a beautiful reminder that fairy tales are at their best when they illuminate the precarious balance between lighthearted childhood and the darkness and danger of adulthood." Teen boy readers might be more drawn to Fat Boy vs. The Cheerleaders by Geoff Herbach. It's narrated by a 16-year-old school band member who rebels when he discovers that the band's funding source (vending machine profits) are being redirected to support cheerleaders. The book is highly recommended by Library Media Connection, whose reviewer said it is "a hilarious story told with a fresh and realistic voice that teenagers will easily relate to."
