The New York Public Library is proud to announce its list of the Best Books for Teens 2014! The list includes a selection of 25 novels, non-fiction books, and graphic novels chosen by a committee of Young Adult librarians who work with teens in NYPL’s neighborhood branches. From March through November we debated and argued, and ultimately decided on these books. It was a tough call, but we think these 25 titles represent some of the best books out there for teens right now.
This list has a little something for everyone: fantasy, science fiction, realism, humor, romance, history, mystery and suspense. We travel from Imperial Russia into the jungles of Gabon, across the oceans to the Panama Canal, from India over to California, then Iowa and finally to Brooklyn, New York, just to name a few exotic locations. These are stories that illuminate the power of friendship and family, love and betrayal, racial tension, giant insect apocalypses, evil witches, psychedelic bat remains, cryogenically frozen heads and non-cuddly chimpanzees.
Listed in alphabetical order by title.
