Being 15 just wondred what people thaught about books aimed at teenagers. I pretty much skipped the teenage section and went straight into adult books once I had gone past children's books. This is mainly because the vast majority of teenage books I have read are increadibly patronising or cliche.
Take the Alex Rider series for example, I read a few and they weren't that badly written but the whole idea of a teenage spy was way too cliche for me. There's quite a few books for teenagers which are in the fantasy or military genre which have battle in them but are too afraid of actualy talking about the violance which I find kind of pointless since the books are about wars.
What I absoloutely can't stand though, is overpowered 12-16 year olds whoa are really good at fighting and somehow beat a professional adult warrior. There are a few exceptions such as feasting the wolf.
So what are your oppinions on teenage novels?
