The best young adult books of 2015
As the sixth What Kids Are Reading report bemoans a tendency among secondary school students to read books that are too easy — suggesting that teachers and librarians aren't pushing challenging titles strongly enough to older kids — the organisers of World Book Day have announced a list that might serve as a corrective, or at least a useful source of ideas. The Writes of Passage list of popular books for young adults, voted for by 7, people across the UK, features a top 10 of books to help "shape and inspire" teenagers, and give them the empathic tools and words to handle some of the challenges of adolescence. The complete list of 50 features books to "help you understand you", "change the way you think" and "make you cry", as well as thrill, transport and scare you. And it's quite substantial. The top 10 is also particularly heavy on books that have been made into films: all but one have already graced the big screen, or are shortly to do so, testifying to the cinematic contribution to a book's success a bestselling title is made into a film, and then acquires more readers from people who see the film first. Even James Bowen's A Streetcat Named Bob , perhaps the most surprising top 10 inclusion, might also make the leap — following a sustained spell on the bestseller lists, Bowen's agent has been in talks about a possible adaptation.

Buy now from your favorite retailer:. In reality, this entire list could be dedicated to John Green books. From An Abundance of Katherines to Looking for Alaska, Green writes in a way that is completely delightful to read as an adult, and his latest piece is no different.
