Summer reading: Good books for young adults

Young adult fiction may be dirtier than you think. According to a new study by Brigham Young University professor Sarah Coyne, teen novels contain an average of 38 instances of profanity. We’ll be talking more about this study at 11 a.m. tomorrow.

Coyne suggests using a rating system for YA books, similar to the system used to rate movies or video games. But until that’s implemented: What YA books do you recommend? Which popular books do you consider inappropriate for teens and young adults?

Leave your suggestions in the comments and we might mention them on air Wednesday.
