We have a group of avid readers in Teen Book Club. They read a wide variety of books – some for younger children and some for older teens – so I asked them what they had read over the summer that they would recommend to other readers and here is that list:

Girl Missing – Sophie MacKenzie

The Boy at the Back of the Class Onjali Rauf

The London Eye Mystery – Siobhan O’Dowd

The Opposite of Always – Justin Reynolds

The Tattooist of Auschwitz  Heather Morris

The Hitchhikers’ Guide to The Galaxy – Douglas Adams

Holes  Louis Sachar

Stepping Stones  Louis Sachar

The Knife of Never Letting Go – Patrick Ness

The End of Time – Gavin Extence

Spies – Michael Friarn

Wonder – R.J Palacio

The Goldfish Boy – Lisa Thompson

The Blood Guard – Carter Roy

Boy 87 – Ele Fountain

Kensuke’s Kingdom – Michael Morpurgo

Please use caution when choosing books for young teens. I’m not a fan of censuring reading but some teen books can deal with very adult themes, so please choose according to your child’s maturity and sensitivity.

Happy Reading!
