There comes a point in a young life when the time is right to move on from the books and children’s authors they enjoyed as a child to reading books and authors that offer greater challenges as they grow up into adulthood. The books in this 14+ category are exactly that. They bridge that gap to introduce you and your teenager to authors who write only for teens but also adult authors who also write for a teenage / young adult audience.

You could also check out our latest highlights such as the 'prizewinners' section where we can help you to discover authors currently in contention for and/or winners of the most prestigious awards, such as the Teenage Book Prize that we feel your teenagers will love.

And finally, if your teenagers prefer to choose their own books then our special teen category on our sister site Lovereading called 'new gen' is the perfect place for them to start.

Click here to read some helpful tips from top children's publisher Egmont.
