List of Good Teen Literature

Written by son of rambow on Sunday, October 03, 2010

If you're a teen after non-crap teen fiction, why not just read normal fiction? If you're bored of cliches you're probably old enough to appreciate some decent popular literature.

Alternatively, books that can be found in both the 'teen fiction' and 'adult fiction' sections include:

I Capture the Castle - Dodie Smith (some sappy love crap, but tastefully done)
His Dark Materials trilogy - Phillip Pullman
The Catcher In The Rye - J.D. Salinger
The Outsiders - S. E. Hinton
The Johnny Maxwell trilogy - Terry Pratchett
The Book Thief - Marcus Zusak
The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath
Junk - Melvin Burgess (strong drugs references)
Bloodtide - Melvin Burgess (strong sex and mutilation references)
Treasure Island - Robert Louis Stevenson

Roald Dahl's children's fiction is enjoyable at any age, but his adult fiction is very disturbing and brilliant. 'The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar' is a good starting point.
