Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson. He is one of my favorite authors of all time and that is the first book of a series that he recently started and it is aimed towards a younger audience than his usual books. Though I would highly recommend any of his works.

If you want to read good YA, then read John Green. Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars are stories that stay with you.

I don't understand why teenagers that are 17 and 18 insist on reading this drivel. Read any book, you're old enough to get something out of it. As a bonus you can read it again as an adult and get even more out of it because of life experience,. So, my suggestion for late teens who are almost adults is Weaveworld by Clive Barker and Eon by Greg Bear. I read both when I was 15 and they were awesome. I read them again at 30 and they were even better. Don't read books that insult the your intelligence. That being said if you're 13 stay away from Clive Barker. Although the show young kids watch are pretty graphic themselves. How many teenagers watch Dexter or True blood?


This guy gets it

If you like horror/suspense/thriller, for teen books I would recommend the author Christopher Pike. He's the happy medium between R.L. Stine and Stephen King! I can't really recall any other teen books or authors to suggest, because I kinda skipped teen books and read giant novels as a kid, but I remember being really hooked on Pike's books. I still have a few lying around at home. ^.^

Actually, scratch that about not remembering anything else,

I also recommend the Pendragon series, the Silverwing series and the Artemis Fowl series.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is pretty good, as long as you don't mind anything weird. Also Harry Potter's a classic, but I'm sure everyone's read those by now. Percy Jackson books are pretty good too. There's also The Fault in Our Stars and The Hunger Games.

Which novel are you criticizing? I can agree with your sentiments. Although, a lot of teenagers watch Dexter. Remember, there's a reason why the "tween" category exists.

Well, not all YA/teen books are drivel. Like any genre, there's great, mediocre, and bad titles. Also, as adults it is harder for us to find something worthwhile in books specifically targeted to a younger audience, but that doesn't mean the books themselves don't have some merit.
