Adult Books for Teens

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

HOTBOX: Inside Catering, the Food World’s Riskiest Business by Matt Lee and Ted Lee
The beloved Lee Brothers take on the competitive and wild world of high-end catering, exposing the secrets of the food business that no home cook or restaurant chef has ever experienced.

“YA foodies will appreciate the approachability of the Lees’ writing.” —Booklist, YA Interest

THE FLAME: Poems Notebooks Lyrics Drawings by Leonard Cohen
Also available in audio.
The final collection of the seminal musician and poet, which he was determined to complete before his death.

“With the self-portraits that pepper the pages and the nakedness of the words, teens will get a glimpse into the artist’s soul. Some will find themselves in these pages, and some will find within Cohen’s writing the words to express their own sorrows, hopes, and frustrations. Others will read the poetry just to let the rhythm and the emotion wash over them in a visceral flow.”

#PubDay (2/12/19)

SO MANY STARS in today’s #pubday… the sky is jealous!

THE NIGHT TIGER by Yangsze Choo
Three starred reviews!
A Nancy Pearl favorite!
“Choo weaves her research in with a feather-light touch, and readers will be so caught up in the natural and supernatural intrigue that the serious themes here about colonialism and power dynamics, about gender and class, are absorbed with equal delicacy. Choo has written a sumptuous garden maze of a novel that immerses readers in a complex, vanished world.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

THE CASSANDRA by Sharma Shields
“[Shields] offers satirically comedic scenes and satisfyingly venomous takedowns of the patriarchy, welcome flashes of light in this otherwise harrowing dive into the darkest depths of hubris and apocalyptic destruction. A uniquely audacious approach to the nuclear nightmare.”–Booklist, starred review

Stars on Stars for THE NIGHT TIGER

New York Times bestselling author Yangsze Choo transports us to 1930s colonial Malaysia in THE NIGHT TIGER, which just received its THIRD starred review!

Astoundingly captivating and striking in its portrayal of love, betrayal, and death, THE NIGHT TIGER is a transcendent story of courage and connection.” Booklist, starred review

“Mythical creatures, conversations with the dead, lucky numbers, Confucian virtues, and forbidden love provide the backdrop for Choo’s superb murder mystery. Mining the rich setting of colonial Malaysia, Choo wonderfully combines a Holmes-esque plot with Chinese lore.”Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Choo weaves her research in with a feather-light touch, and readers will be so caught up in the natural and supernatural intrigue that the serious themes here about colonialism and power dynamics, about gender and class, are absorbed with equal delicacy. Choo has written a sumptuous garden maze of a novel that immerses readers in a complex, vanished world.Kirkus Reviews, starred review
