New Teen Fiction

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.

The Hit by Melvin Burgess is edgy and dystopian and dark, so teens are likely to love its story about a new drug that guarantees a week of pleasure before death. Icelandic author Fridrik Erlingsson provides an intense story about a boy whose physical disability causes painful isolation and rejection in Boy On The Edge. Threatened, by Eliot Schrefer, sets its protagonist among chimpanzees in Gabon. The setting in The Unseemly Education Of Anne Merchant, by Joanna Wiebe, is a prep boarding school where things aren't quite what they seem.

These and many other books for young readers are on the Teen Fiction list. To find the list click on the New, Best & Fun page tabbed from the catalog. The list is updated frequently, so check in and check it out!
