Huff Post Books:
Some of the most powerful YA books being written today are what I call “resilience literature:” stories about tough issues that teens deal with every day.
But it’s not just teens. Adults are flocking to these books, too, maybe because adult life has its share of tough issues, and everyone enjoys well-written stories about hardship and triumph.
If you’re looking for more books on discussing social issues among teenagers, TCBR recommends Middle School Confidential: What’s up with my family?, by Annie Fox.
