Michelle's Picks: Teen Books For Everyone




Teen
TeenCollage
Teen books show the breadth, depth and wealth of who we are in ways that I sometimes find lacking in mainstream adult publishing. Growing up I learned to accept I was never going to find characters that looked like me or my neighborhood. Teen novels (and middle grade novels too like Land of the Cranes!) center our stories and the complexity of our experiences that makes me jealous of teens today and hopeful for the future. Below is a small sampling of my favorites from this year. Books that break away from mainstream narratives of who we should be, how we should live our lives and what it means to live.
