Adult Books for Teens

Booklist and School Library Journal have deemed these adult books to be great for teens . . . and we agree!

I.M. by Isaac Mizrahi
Also available in audio
Isaac Mizrahi is sui generis: designer, cabaret performer, talk-show host, a TV celebrity. He’s a pop culture icon unlike any fashion designer of recent memory, just as likely to be recognized walking down Main Street USA as Madison Avenue NYC. Yet ever since he shot to fame in the 1980s, the private Isaac Mizrahi has remained under wraps. Until now.

“A good choice for teens interested in the fashion industry, and those striving to realize their creative passion, establish an identity, or understand their sexuality.” —Booklist, YA Interest

MOTHER COUNTRY by Irina Reyn
Award-winning author Irina Reyn explores what it means to be a mother in a world where you can’t be with your child. MOTHER COUNTRY is Irina Reyn’s most emotionally complex, urgent novel yet. Hopeful and full of humor, it is a story of mothers and daughters and, above all else, resilience.

“YAs will sympathize with teen Larisska’s simmering resentment about her perceived abandonment, and appreciate her struggles with a challenging disease.” —Booklist, YA Interest
