Best teen books for your summer travel reading list

 In Books

Sitting on the beach I glance up from my book. The boys are playing in the sand in front of me; my husband is helping them build a sandcastle. I sit in my chair mesmerized by the fact that I can get a solid five minutes of reading in without interruption.

What am I reading? Any number of things, but more often than not a bit of YA fiction is in my queue. It’s not that I don’t like deep, inspirational tales, nonfiction or adult drama, I just like a bit of easy, whimsical reading when I’m on holiday, and I’m not alone. I’ve grabbed a few friends to compile a list of books you and your teen can enjoy together this summer. Some are heavier than others, but all will entertain in some way. And watch out for that list of fiction series at the end. They will draw you in and not let you out until you finish every last one. Enjoy!

    These are great suggestions! Now if only I can get my daughter (15) to enjoy reading as much as I do.

    What about “A Wrinkle in Time” by Madeline L’Engle… a classic!
