The years leading up to your 20s are such a vibrant and vivid time in your life. Adventure, friendships, self-discovery are all there in spades, but there’s frustration too, impatience and a strong desire to be understood. This section of fantastic books for young adult readers is filled with stories that reflect all of these feelings in settings that will give flight to your imagination. Be inspired by tales of self-discovery, run the rocky road of romance, battle big issues in mysterious worlds, beat the bleak future of dystopian regimes, or laugh out loud at the ridiculousness of it all. There’s something here for all tastes and moods from half-god heroes to horseback holidays and literally everything in between.

 

You can download a free Opening Extract of each book, usually about the first chapter. Read it on your screen, or print it off and enjoy anywhere. We give you enough of a book to see whether it’s your sort of thing.

 

The Wishlist feature is great if it's your birthday or Christmas coming up. Make an online list of books you'd like to read and email Mum, Dad or generous relatives with credit cards.

 

Try the Author Like-for-Like tool when you've finished all the books by one author you love, and don't know what to read next. Just type in a favourite writer's name, and we'll suggest others, equally brilliant and with a similar style.

 

It's all completely free. All we need from you is an email address and password. But don't worry; we don't go passing on your contact details to anyone else.
