Beyond YA

Our young adult (YA) book specialists have prepared a list of what are often referred to as crossover novels. While these are not YA books, they contain themes and aspects from well loved young adult novels such as coming of age journeys, richly imagined fantasy and futuristic worlds, teenage and young twenty-something characters, and edgy mysteries. 

Please be aware that the content in these books might be more suited for mature teens. Reach out to us at askkeplers@gmail.com if you want to know more about a particular title or would like us to guide you to the right book for yourself or a young adult in your life.
