I would like to add JG's, by M.D.Marrone...great story for ages 9-12 with themes of bullying, disabilities and fitness at beach setting of Junior Lifeguards...quick read...about 100 pages and FUN!! It's on Amazon for around 5 bucks and on Kindle for 99 cents!

Madeleine L'Engle's Time Quintet series and C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia are classic tween/teen reading. C.S. Lewis is well-known for the Narnia books, but he also wrote a space trilogy and a novel called Till We Have Faces that teens might enjoy. George MacDonald is good for fantasy reading too.

I love THE OUTLANDER series myself and would and do recommend it to other adults... :)

I disagree about OUTLANDER for teens or there's, the author herself has said they are NOT meant for children under 18. Although there are a few series that seem to have been forgotten, Rick Roirdan' s PERCY JACKSON series, and KANE CHRONICLES, as well as James Patterson's MAXIMUM RIDE series. There's also the HUNGER GAMES. I could continue to come up with more books suitable for teen and tween readers since I have both age groups...

Completely agree with amyrck. Outlander is an adult level novel including violence and other very adult themes (eg - rape/attempted rape) . Love the series myself and would recommend it to other adults without hesitation.

I love the Outlander series, but I definitely wouldn't recommend it for a tween or young teen! I think 16 would be the youngest my daughters could read them.
