Young Adult Books for Adult Readers

Thomas Kepler
The list author says: "Take Huck Finn, for instance. It's about a lot more than a hick from Missouri floating down the Ol' Muddy. Here is a list of books that perhaps speak more to adults than teens--including my YA novel, that surprised me by receiving "gritty" and "raw" designations in reviews. Let me know of other books to add."

"Honest and real. This makes you want to be a parent and feel the pain."

"OK, Blume says it's one of her adult books, but she wrote her books older as her kids grew up. This one's a good one."

"Harper Lee wrote one book--proving you can get it right the first time."

"Let's take the romanticism out of young men going to war."

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
"Yes, Twain used the "n-word" over 200 times in this novel but didn't use it in real life. Era-accurate realism and probably why Twain ran to the West and away from the Civil War."
