For Teens

While these books have been selected for teens 12 to 18 years of age, titles on the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) lists span a broad range of reading and maturity levels. Librarians encourage adults to take an active role in helping individual teens choose those books that are the best fit for them and their families.
