Adult Books for Teens

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

SHE WAS THE QUIET ONE by Michele Campbell
Also available in audio
When twin sisters Rose and Bel Enright enroll in The Odell School, a prestigious New Hampshire boarding school, it seems like the opportunity of a lifetime. But the sisters could not be more different. The school brings out a rivalry between them that few ever knew existed. And the school itself has a dark underbelly: of privileged kids running unchecked and uninhibited; of rituals and traditions that are more sinister than they seem; of wealth and entitlement that can only lead to disaster.

“Teens who love to read about intrigue at boarding school will like this, too.”
Booklist, YA Interest

“This fast-paced tale will be great for teens who enjoy dark mysteries.” —School Library Journal

WOMAN WORLD by Aminder Dhaliwal
When a birth defect wipes out the planet’s entire population of men, Woman World rises out of society’s ashes. Dhaliwal’s infectiously funny Instagram comic follows the rebuilding process, tracking a group of women who have rallied together under the flag of “Beyonce’s Thighs.” For the most part, Woman World’s residents are focused on their struggles with unrequited love and anxiety, not to mention that whole “survival of humanity” thing.

“The focus on relationships and the lighthearted humor will be a big draw for teens.” —Booklist, YA Interest

Thriller Thursday (8/2/18 Edition)

Twisty thrillers and series favorites return in today’s #ThrillerThursday picks:

BLOODY SUNDAY by Ben Coes
Also available in audio
“A simple premise drives bestseller Coes’s excellent eighth thriller featuring indomitable CIA agent Dewey Andreas: North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un is dying of cancer. It’s a complicated mission, and in the end only Dewey has the skills, courage, and sheer badass tenacity to pull it off. A ticking clock ratchets up the tension in the best entry in the series so far.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

SHE WAS THE QUIET ONE by Michele Campbell
Also available in audio
When twin sisters Rose and Bel Enright enroll in a prestigious New Hampshire boarding school, it brings out a rivalry between them that few ever knew existed…and leaves one girl dead. “…Campbell’s skillful characterization and her shocking final twist make this follow-up to IT’S ALWAYS THE HUSBAND well worthwhile. Readers who enjoyed Simone St. James’ boarding-school mystery, THE BROKEN GIRLS, should give this a try.” — Booklist

REQUIEM by Geir Tangen
The first in a new Nordic crime series starring journalist Viljar Gudmundsson and Investigator Lotte Skeisvoll. “Already an international best seller, this initially self-published debut by a Norwegian crime book blogger is true to the genre. A dark and slightly creepy thriller that fans of Henning Mankell and Arnaldur Indridason will appreciate.” — Library Journal readmoreremove
