Young Adult Novel Reading List

The following are a list of young adult novels and memoirs which we read as a part of the poetry workshop. The books were purchased with grants from BECU, Everett Public Schools Foundation, Greater Everett Community Foundation, Terry and Cheryle Earnheart Fund for Children, and the Tulalip Tribes.  We choose these novels and memoirs because the youth identify with the characters and situations of the stories. The teens will often say, “This story is just like me!” We also select the books based on the writing craft, and our list includes novels-in-verse as well as graphic novels.  We hope to continue to update our list as further grants become available.
