Top ten Books You MUST Read as a teenager – Infopedia Reviews

Books You Must Read As A Teenager

Books can transport you anywhere. They have the unique capacity to transport us to different worlds through the eyes and thoughts of a major character or narrator. As we continue reading to find out what occurs next, their experiences become more genuine. Some leave you pondering about what just transpired, while others inspire you in many ways and assist you in dealing with difficult themes. Others teach you about your surroundings, but books may simply be an enjoyable way to spend the time. 

It’s difficult to know where to begin because you could read every day of your life and never pick up the same book twice. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the most motivating, intriguing, and engrossing books that every teenager should read. These are the best stories to finish before the age of 18 or 19 perhaps. These books may affect your perspective on the world or how you work toward your goals in the future.

1. The Hate you give ~ Angie Thomas

Angie Thomas’s 2017 young adult novel The Hate U Give was published in 2017. It’s Thomas’s first novel, based on a short story she wrote in college in response to the police shooting of Oscar Grant. Starr Carter, a 16-year-old black girl from a poor area who attends an elite private school in a mostly white, affluent portion of the city, narrates the book. After witnessing a white police officer shoot and kill her childhood friend, Khalil, Starr becomes embroiled in a national news event. She speaks out against the shooting in increasingly public ways, and societal tensions explode into a riot after a grand jury decides not to indict the police officer.

This book will change your view about quite a lot of delusion you might have about black people. The more you read, the better you would know.

2. Say What You Will ~ Cammie McGovern

Amy, who was born with cerebral palsy, is unable to walk without a walker, speak without a voice box, or even control her facial expressions. Matthew, who suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder, is preoccupied by repetitive thoughts, neurotic rituals, and agonizing terror. Amy and Matthew are more alike than either of them thought, both in dire need of someone to help them reach out to the world. 

Amy hires student aides to assist her during her senior year at Coral Hills High School, and these two teenagers are thrown into one other’s lives. As they spend more time together, what began as a blooming relationship evolves into something none of them imagined.

This book will more than inspire you.

3. Under The Magnolias ~ T.I. Lowe

Austin Foster is barely a teen when her mother dies while giving birth to twins, leaving her to pick up the pieces while holding her six siblings together and attempting to keep her father from retreating into his personal darkness. 

Making a living on the family’s tobacco plantation is as difficult as it gets. When a few random acts of generosity serve to alleviate the Fosters’ difficulties, Austin finds herself relying on Magnolia’s most colorful residents for companionship and more. But concealing the truth about what’s going on at Nolia Farms is nearly impossible, and Austin’s desperate attempts to save face nearly shattered her.

Just when it appears that she could have something more in store for her—with the son of a wealthy local family on whom she’s had a crush for years—her father takes a decision that will expose the family’s secrets and force a public reckoning. There are consequences to falling in love with a boy like Vance Cumberland, but there is also freedom in the truth. 

T. I. Lowe’s gritty, yet tender, and uplifting story reminds us that a great story can break your heart… and then heal it in the best way possible.

6. On The Come up ~ Angie Thomas

On the Come Up is an ode to hip hop from one of the most influential literary voices of a generation. It is insightful, unflinching, and full of heart. It’s a narrative about battling for your ambitions even when the chances are stacked against you, and about how, particularly for young black people, free speech isn’t always free. 

dated February 5, 2019 It follows the narrative of Bri, a sixteen-year-old rapper seeking to follow in her father’s footsteps and’make it’ as an underground hip-hop legend. Bri becomes an internet sensation overnight after publishing a rap tune that ignites controversy. Bri faces controversy to realize her aspirations as she defies the odds to’make it.’ It takes place in the same world (Garden Heights) as Thomas’ first novel.

You love Music, raps and a little bit of interracial romance, then this is for you.

7. Sunflower in February ~ Phyllida Shrimpton

Lily was killed in an automobile crash. The problem is that Lily isn’t convinced she wants to’move on’… This amusing and poignant novel is ideal. 

Lily awakens on the side of the road on a fresh Sunday morning. 

She has no idea how she ended up there. It’s all extremely serene. And really gorgeous. It isn’t until the police car and then the ambulance arrive and she sees her own body that she realizes she is… dead. 

Lily has no choice but to follow her body as her family – her parents and her twin brother – begins to fall apart. Then her twin brother Ben grants her a once-in-a-lifetime chance to use his own body for a while. Will Lily, on the other hand, return Ben’s body? She’s getting into the swing of things… 

A dazzling young talent’s passionate, breathtakingly humorous, and achingly tragic debut novel. 

Overall, I strongly suggest this book since it will both teach you something and make you feel something.

In Orsha, where snow leoponaires stalk and malevolent ghosts lurk in the rivers, danger looms. The greatest threat, though, may be Zélie herself, as she tries to control her talents and her growing affections for an adversary. 

It’s an epic that will keep you turning the pages over and over. It’s unlike anything you’ve ever read..

9. The Outsider ~ Stephen King

A gripping and terrifying suspense thriller that will appeal to fans of Stephen King’s best-selling Hodges Trilogy. 

When an eleven-year-old child is discovered killed in a town park, eyewitnesses unmistakably point to Terry Maitland, the town’s popular Little League coach, as the perpetrator. This well-liked family man committed the crime, according to DNA evidence and fingerprints. 

Detective Ralph Anderson, whose own son was formerly tutored by Maitland, is horrified by the violent death and demands the suspect to be arrested in public. But Maitland has a plausible explanation. Further investigation reveals that he was definitely out of town on that particular day.

The inquiry spreads from Ohio to Texas as Anderson and the District Attorney follow the clues. And as terrifying answers surface, King’s pulsating thriller of almost excruciating suspense accelerates. 

Terry Maitland appears to be a decent guy, but there is one incontrovertible fact: a man cannot be in two places at the same time. Is he capable?
