Adult Books for Teens

You may have noticed that there are books in the YA section that your parents, and other adults, are just as excited about reading as you are. There is a whole world of books out there that are written for adults, but are also perfect for teens. Some that come to mind are The Lovely Bones, The Secret Life of Bees and Ender's Game.

The Alex Awards are given each year by the Young Adult Library Services Association to adult books that are of interest to teens. They are the best of the best for the year. The 2004 awards have just been announced and include:
- The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, YA FIC HAD
- Persepolis, YA Graphic SAT
- The Time Traveler's Wife, FIC NIF
- Drinking Coffee Elsewhere, FIC PAC

For more books on the list go to the Alex Awards site.
