Faith'n'Fiction Saturday: Let's Discuss Young Adult Fiction

Faith'n'Fiction Saturday is a weekly discussion about the intersection of faith and fiction. You may participate by posting a comment or writing a post on your blog. Next week is the second round table discussion. The book we discussed was In the Garden of the North American Martyrs. For a complete schedule of the round tables for the rest of the year, please refer to this list.

Today I'd like to talk about YA fiction for Christian teens. The Christian fiction market for YA is still quite small and not varied. It seems heavy on fantasy or girly books. Let's be honest.

But that doesn't mean there's not a wealth of great books published in the general market for Christian teens. Today's challenge is to compile a list of recommended books, Christian or general market for Christians teens.

Here's My List:

Start Here: Doing Hard Things Right Where You Are by Alex & Brett Harris (giving this away here)

Kingdom Series by Chuck Black

DragonKeeper Chronicles Series by Donita K. Paul

Hollywood Nobody Series by Lisa Samson

Wingfeather Saga Series by Andrew Peterson

The Book of Names by D. Barkley Briggs

The Dreamhouse Kings by Robert Liparulo

All About Us Series by Shelley Adina
