Despite the large number of books for teenagers that exist , the habit of reading is being lost. It is normal for the book to lose its captivating power in favor of other forms of entertainment such as video games or series, but some of the young adult novels that we offer you below are just as engaging or more than any production you can find on Netflix.
We remember, on the other hand, that to enjoy a book it is no longer necessary to resort to the physical format . On the Internet, there are many digital platforms that allow you to download books to your mobile phone or tablet. You no longer have an excuse.

When you’re in the “turkey age”, there’s nothing like picking up a good adventure book and escaping from the disconcerting reality.

1. The Hunger Games (Suzanne Collins) Suzanne Collins
‘ trilogy of adventures is one of the most interesting proposals for teenagers of all generations. In a dystopian future, the dominant social strata organize a macabre reality game show in which losing means death ..

However, there are those who claim that it is a mere copy of Battle Royale, the most famous novel by Koushun Takami.

2. Twilight (Stephenie Meyer)
Twilight could belong to the second category, but it would be unfair to say that the Twilight saga belongs solely and exclusively to the romantic genre. In truth, Meyer crafts a riveting story of vampires, werewolves, and other supernatural elements that serves as the backdrop for the impossible love story between Edward and Bella.

3. Divergent (Veronica Roth)
We stay in science fiction with one of the most successful teen book trilogies of the last decade. Again, we find ourselves in a dystopia in which society has been divided into five factions.

Following in the footsteps of The Hunger Games comes this trilogy that has also been adapted to film. A teenage boy wakes up in the middle of a hostile maze with no memory of what happened.

One of the classics of fantasy literature , ideal for teenage readers eager for adventure.

As her body lies in the hospital bed, her soul must decide if she moves on or does not come back to life . A revealing that has been successfully adapted to the big screen.

2. Under the Same Star (John Green)

John Green is an expert on the teen novel, although The Fault in Our Stars and Looking for Alaska are perhaps his two most moving stories.

The Fault in Our Stars tells the story of Hazel, a girl with lung cancer who doesn’t know whether to open her heart to a young man named Guz.

Many will know the story from the Spanish movie starring the mass idol Mario Casas.

Often described as the Romeo and Juliet of modern times, the novel focuses on the passions of two young Italians. One of those successes born from word of mouth.

4. Thirteen Reasons Why (Jay Asher)
Netflix’s teen phenom is inspired by a novel of the same name. Thirteen Reasons Why is a manifesto against bullying and gender abuse , a heartbreaking story that recounts the reasons that led young Hannah Baker to suicide. A book that, far from avoiding controversy, deals with each of the sensitive issues typical of American adolescent culture.

5. Tokyo Blues (Norwegian wood) (Haruki Murakami)
Murakami often focuses his work on Japanese youth culture from an almost surreal perspective, which is why he has won admirers and detractors alike. In Tokyo Blues, however, he includes all the necessary elements to appeal to a teenage audience: a rather turbulent love triangle and a tormented protagonist with whom the reader can identify.

6. Eleanor & Park (Rainbow Rowell)
A love story far removed from the stereotypes of the genre thanks to two round and endearing protagonists . As is necessary, some major and minor problems will arise that will complicate the relationship between the two young people, two high school outsiders looking for their place in the world.

7. I keep everything I never told you here (Sara Herranz)
A good way to make reading more enjoyable is through illustrations and annotations.

A short but essential book for teenagers, to understand that heartbreak is just one more part of life.

8. Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair (Pablo Neruda)
If we are to highlight a poetry book for teenagers, we are left with this collection by Neruda that includes 20 poems about the author’s “tormented passions”. A heartbreaking and sensitive workand an unbeatable way to introduce young audiences to this literary style. Poeta de Guardia de Gloria Fuertes would also be a good option.

1. The Book Thief (Markus Zusak)
A book about World War II that everyone (not just young audiences) should read once in their life. The story takes place before the outbreak of war in Germany, a convulsive scenario in which the young Liesel tries to make her way and grow.

2. The Stranger (Albert Camus)
If you have ever felt out of place as a young teenager, this story by Albert Camus is for you.

Highly recommended for parents of children in problematic ages .

Luci is a young woman who struggles to come out of a coma after taking an ecstasy pill. This fierce battle is exemplified through a game of chess, while her acquaintances, friends and her family battle for the young woman to wake up and arrest the culprit. An amazing book that portrays in great detail the consequences of drug abuse .
