But that is the name of my new book, which I just finished this week.
Karina Glaser Back in May we posted about books for reluctant readers ages twelve and thirteenand today we bring you a list of over seventy books for reluctant readers ages fourteen and fifteen. As kids get into their teen years, it might be harder to pry them away from their devices and get them interested in good old fashioned books.
When I asked the school administrator about this, she told me that when kids became teens they lost interest in reading so they stopped stocking books for them.
Well, that just about broke my heart. There are thousands of great titles out there for teens, stories that are sure to grab their interest and have them wanting to read more.
I present you this list of fantastic graphic novels, memoirs, coming-of-age stories, fantasy, dystopian, romance, history, thrillers, classics, and more for your reluctant teen reader. As always, feel free to add your suggestions in the comments below!
