Clean Teen

Because YA is such an elastic category nowadays, we understand how hard it might be to find age-appropriate titles for younger readers who are at an advanced reading level. Let us help! Longer series are represented by the first book.

Please note:

  • While most of the titles in this collection are squeaky clean, some of them do include romance (mild sexual content is implied or off-the-page) and violence (descriptions are not graphic).
  • Some of these titles are shelved and/or technically classified as middle grade titles, but rest assured they are still appropriate and advanced enough for the transitional tween crowd.
