No matter what age you are, sitting down with a great coming-of-age story is a pure delight. Some of the most iconic books of all time were written with teens in mind, so here are some to consider for gifts. Or, you know, you can just read them yourself. Like many of the books on this list, The Golden Compass is one of those novels you read as a teenager, and re-read as an adult with just as much enjoyment. This sweet book is about two misfits who bond over their shared quirkiness and love of music. More than that, it's about friendship, loss, and longing — especially when it comes to Eleanor, who lives with her family at her horrible step-father's home, and relies on Park to help her escape.
Even if the age range on the book jacket implies that you were"supposed" to have graduated from young adult novels long ago, YA books are an addicting reading pleasure for both the young and the adults. After all, there are no rules to reading; all ages are welcome any time, any where. So from mysterious thrillers to cultural statements and the creative world of fantasy , we've found engaging storylines that represent the best of young adult novels in —so far. And as always, you can keeping checking back for the latest and greatest.
