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

Nonfiction Round-Up (2/6/19)

Race, Love, the Wild West, and becoming a Badass–dive into this week’s nonfiction round-up!

BROWN WHITE BLACK: An American Family at the Intersection of Race, Gender, Sexuality, and Religion by Nishta J. Mehra
Two starred reviews!
“Mehra’s nuanced and thought-provoking work resonates on multiple levels—from the immigrant experience and race relations to accepting one’s sexuality, adoption, parenthood, and more. Excellent for readers interested in family and issues of identity in America.”–Library Journal, starred review

HARD TO LOVE: Essays and Confessions by Briallen Hopper
“Whether she is writing about her fraught decision to become pregnant with donated sperm, a friend’s bout with cancer, baking (‘a code for conveying care safely without the ambiguity of words’), the collective energy of the Women’s March, or a visit to the Foundling Museum, Hopper’s essays seem like love songs, as well: delicate, thoughtful elegies to friendship, compassion, and grace. A fresh, well-crafted collection.”--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

WILD BILL: The True Story of the American Frontier’s First Gunfighter by Tom Clavin
“A vigorous yarn concerning the man who, by Clavin’s (DODGE CITY) account, set the template for the Wild West gunslinger…. Good history accessibly and ably told.” —Kirkus Reviews

THE WARRIOR CODE: 11 Principles to Unleash the Badass Inside of You by Tee Marie Hanible with Denene Millner
“Hanible’s practical, no-nonsense advice and her candidness about both her missteps and all she’s endured and conquered make her an impressive role model and guide for women and men of all ages who are navigating challenges in their lives.”–Booklist
