World Book Day: The 10 best teen reads

Standard

‘As the sixth What Kids Are Reading report bemoans a tendency among secondary school students to read books that are too easy – suggesting that teachers and librarians aren’t pushing challenging titles strongly enough to older kids – the organisers of World Book Day have announced a list that might serve as a corrective, or at least a useful source of ideas. The Writes of Passage list of popular books for young adults, voted for by 7,000 people across the UK, features a top 10 of books to help “shape and inspire” teenagers, and give them the empathic tools and words to handle some of the challenges of adolescence. The complete list of 50 features books to “help you understand you”, “change the way you think” and “make you cry”, as well as thrill, transport and scare you. And it’s quite substantial. ‘
