Find Great Teen Books

"Search 4,000+ books, audiobooks, and films from YALSA's book awards and book lists.

While these books have been selected for teens from 12 to 18 years of age, the award-winning titles and the titles on YALSA's selected lists span a broad range of reading and maturity levels. We encourage adults to take an active role in helping individual teens choose those books that are the best fit for them and their families."

More about it...

"The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) has launched a teen book finder database. "Like the Teen Bookfinder App, the database provides recommendations from YALSA’s annual book awards and selected book and media lists going back to 1988. Award winners were selected for young adults–ages 12 to 18–and span a broad range of reading and maturity levels." It looks like this is free and everyone can use it."
