Adult Books for Teens

Booklist has deemed these adult titles to be
perfect for teen readers . . . and we agree!

NATURALLY TAN by Tan France
From one of the stars of Netflix’s overnight sensation Queer Eye, Tan France’s memoir has his signature wit, style, and tells the origin story of one of the few openly gay, South Asian men on television.

“In many ways, this is a coming-of-age memoir; France met his first boyfriend and began his career in fashion at 17. Teen fans will be interested.” —Booklist, YA Interest

MAGIC FOR LIARS by Sarah Gailey
This debut novel from the Hugo-award-winning Sarah Gailey combines the mainstream fantasy appeal of The Magicians with the twists of Tana French’s investigative noir series.

“A magical boarding school will always bewitch YAs; add in the teen subplots and you’ve got a sure thing.” —Booklist, YA Interest

Sneak Peek: July 2019 Indie Next List

THE ELECTRIC HOTEL by Dominic Smith

Two starred reviews!

“A compelling plot, robust characters, and finely crafted prose richly evoke a bygone age and art.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Smith’s tale is as luminous as celluloid projected on a silver screen hung from a dirigible floating over the Hudson (yes, this happens). Highly recommended for historical fiction fans and readers who love old Hollywood novels.”–Booklist, starred review

MAGIC FOR LIARS by Sarah Gailey

“There’s something for almost all readers here: family drama, romance, high-school gossip, fantasy-world building. Above all, Gailey shows us that humans are humans, even when they are magic, and they are still flawed, damaged, and oh so interesting.”–Booklist, starred review
