It's almost a cliche at this point to say that teen fiction isn't just for teens anymore. Which is why we were only a little surprised to see the tremendous response that came in for this summer's Best-Ever Teen Fiction poll. A whopping 75, of you voted for your favorite young adult novels, blasting past the total for last year's science fiction and fantasy poll at, dare we say it, warp speed. And now, the final results are in. While it's no surprise to see Harry Potter and the Hunger Games trilogy on top, this year's list also highlights some writers we weren't as familiar with.

With the help of a fabulous librarian, I compiled this list of fantastic adult reads for teens. Before Ta-Nehisi Coates penned his bestseller Between the World and Me , he wrote this powerful memoir about growing up with an activist father. Jackson was the master of creating horror through atmosphere and suggestion rather than through explicit descriptions or gore. When my daughter came home from camp last summer, she started saying that she really wanted to go to boarding school. She knew that this was never going to happen, but she continued to bring up the subject. In a world that seems more accepting of variations in gender identity, sexual orientation, and gender expression than when Middlesex was published in , many teens still struggle with these issues. I urge everyone, teens and adults, to read this moving, beautiful story and talk about it with your young adult. Some of us are soccer moms or tiger moms or dance moms — I am a drama mom. Tim Federle, author of the beloved Better Nate Than Ever , deserves a standing ovation for this entertaining advice book that teaches valuable lessons about grit and determination without being preachy or treacly.

Many of us look back on the "young adult" years of our life and remember both broad brush strokes of volatile feelings and now-inconsequential details of school politics and heartbreak. The rush of hormones thrown in haphazardly didn't do much for lending clarity, either. It also happens to be the stage of life where you are most out of place, not quite a kid, not really an adult , which can leave a lot of people feeling lost. They could create a new world, lend you a better understanding of the one you were in, or make you laugh out loud. And while we might have all believed we were the only people in our awkward ninth grade class to feel like a square peg in a round hole, the wonderful thing is that the older you get, the more you realize every single person went through the same thing. And the same books that made you feel less alone, that you connected with so fully, are likewise the things that a complete stranger might have felt and been glad for during the same precarious time. It comes as a nice surprise as a full-fledged adult to connect with another person that way. Keeping that in mind, I decided to ask the staff at Business Insider to share their favorite Young Adult books, plus their reasons why.
