The Neverending Teen Reading List

I posted on Facebook a few weeks about seeking book suggestions for my 13yo, who can never find anything she wants at the library. Books marked “teen fiction” are mostly awful — or checked out — and adult fiction is just huge if you don’t know what you’re looking for. This is the mostly unedited list that developed from friends’ comments. If something on here is awful, I disclaim all responsibility.

And please feel to add comment on what’s here or add to it! I promise to update eventually.
