  1. That is a great list. Right now, my oldest is into mysteries, so he just bought a few 39 Clues books for the summer.

  2. This sounds like a great list for teens! I used to love books like “I was here” when I was younger, they helped me to kind of understand life from a different perspective. I definitely think that the more we expose our teens safely to other walks of life, the easier it is for them to be empathetic and supportive of others as they grow.

  3. I’m definitely adding the Storyspinner to my wish list. That looks like such a cool book. I Was Here looks like a good one too, although sad. I love summer reading!

  4. My teenagers don’t want to admit they like reading, but I know better ;-). Summer is the perfect time to allow long uninterrupted stretches for really getting into a good book. I might even join them!

  5. Every year I buy books for the grandkids so they have reading material for their summer vacation. I see quite a few books you have listed that they will love so I am going to check these out and see what my grand daughter thinks.

  6. I know a 15 year old who would love this list. She won’t be able to say she’s bored this summer with her nose in a good book!

  7. I have teen grandsons.My grandson’s like to read more sports oriented type books, when they read. I wish they loved reading a little more. Of my daughter’s 5 children, only 1 loves to read and he is in the second grade. I’m sure teenage girls would enjoy these books.
    I know some grown folks who would enjoy several of these books.

  8. I just had a discussion in the car with my Mom today where I finally told her (after 60 some odd years) that I do not like the books she reads so stop trying to get me to read them! She was upset but so be it–I like to read a lot as you all know–just not what she likes. So while selecting books for your kids try to find out what they like to read –check them out for sure- it may not be what you think!!

  9. Oh I think I want to read a lot of those myself! I sometimes read heavier stuff, but really I love more the YA light fun reading.

  10. Great list! I’m going to share these titles with my friends that have teens. I used to love reading on the beach with my son. It was a great time to connect.

  11. These sound like some pretty great picks for teens! I don’t have a teen but afew of these even sounds fun for me to read hehe 😉

  12. I’ve never heard of these before. The Girl At Midnight sounds like something I’d enjoy.
