It can be difficult to be teen and live through the middle and high school years. We have a collection of books for teens about a variety of issues. We call these our "Teen Survival Guides" and we keep them near the Young Adult collection on the same book case as the graphic novels. These are a few of the books we have. We welcome suggestions for more titles.
