Fifteen Books That Teens Love

Rachel Iyer, Reporter

Here are 15 books perfect for teens:

My Top Five:

  1. The Fault in our Stars by John Green – A cliché love story that is somehow different from the rest and presence itself in a way that teens can understand and relate to.
  2. 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher – The book was better, trust me.
  3. The Outsiders by S.E Hinton – I read this in my LA class last year and I think it has great character development and talks about real struggles that people face in our society
  4. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell – I love how the book was in third person but alternates the perspective between Eleanor and Park.
  5. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey – The book is what you think it is. It is a self help book for teens. I haven’t personally read it, but many of my peers and teens across the world love it and have found it very helpful.   

Ten Others That I Highly Recommend:

  1. Looking for Alaska by John Green
  2. Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
  3. Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
  4. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
  5. The Giver by Lois Lowry
  6. Holes by Louis Sachar
  7. The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
  8. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
  9. Number the Stars by Lois Lowry
  10. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
