It's no secret to fans of Harry Potter, Twilight, and The Hunger Games that teen books aren't just for teens any more. There are many reasons that adults are turning to YA literature, but mostly, it's because there are some great stories out there that have been marketed to young adults.
Whether you're wanting a great coming of age novel, a more succinct story, or want to be able to connect with a teen in your life through books, here are some authors to check out. Just like with adult books, not everything will appeal to you, but don't limit your reading just because something is in the teen section!
