If you’re looking for a book for your child that combines humor, coming-of-age lessons, and a little bit of nonconformity, our friends at Common Sense Media have a list of 17 books your tween or teen needs to add to their reading list.
Virtually all teens go through a period where they feel like they just don’t fit in. That’s what makes the main characters in these novels and memoirs so relatable – they’re misfits, too (or at least they think they are!). And they’re funny, too – always a plus. For more teen stories, see our Coming-of-Age Books and Teen Romance Novels lists.
