17 Realistic Fiction Books You Should Check Out

I’m not going to lie, I’m a sucker for teen fiction. I’m especially fond of teen realistic fiction. Why? Because I believe that teens face more experiences than what we give them credit for. We often ignore what teens have to say because we want to believe that they can’t face certain issues when in fact they can experience just as much, if not more than what the average adult will ever face.

I’ve probably read more young adult realistic fiction than any other genre because I enjoy it and it’s often better writing than adult books. If you’re looking for some good writing about real problems, you should probably check these books out in the teen section:
