Reading Complexity for Young Adults


There are a ton of great books out there that require young adults to think just a little bit harder.  One of the ways authors accomplish this is by having different point of views, jumping around with the timeline of the story, or using multiple genres to tell a story.

Here’s a round up of my favorite books for teens that don’t follow a typical plot outline.  Help the young adult readers in your life stretch their mental chops.

1.  The First Part Last- Angela Johnson

2.  Code Name Verity- Elizabeth Wein

3. Will Grayson, Will Grayson- David Levithan & John Green

4. Tears of A Tiger- Sharon Draper

5. In Darkness- Nick Lake

Do you have any to add to my list?
