The Top Ten Realistic Fiction Teen Books

1 The Fault In Our Stars - John Green

Thirteen Reasons Why I like more, but this book is amazing - Swiftdawn

I read this book in two days. It made me cry so much. Perfect book.

-13 year old guy

It's so beautiful and I just can't explain what it means to me.

This was so amazing I really want to go see the movie so bad

2 Thirteen Reasons Why - Jay Asher

This book is one of my absolute favorites, I read it in one day because I was up all night reading and in the morning I read it again! READ THIS FELLOW TEENS - Swiftdawn

MOST of the events and things that people ignore in the book may seem little but mean a lot and are quite true to what really happens in reality. I mean Clay really wanted to talk Hannah and I'm pretty 100% sure that everyone has had that feeling in school. All the people who ignored what was happening and contributed to it, relate to what we actually do in real life.

So good. I read it all in one night

It shows the dark reality of what it's like to feel suicidal and be driven to the point of committing suicide. It also contains a lot of today's issues like slut shaming, sexual harassment, etc - Ang2001

3 Speak - Laurie Halse Anderson
4 The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky

A very real book about problems that every teen can relate to

I love this book and movie so much. - AnonymousChick

5 To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee

The plot itself was actually pretty good, but the way it was written, I wanted to fall asleep... - Therandom

This is a good book. - Pony

6 Between Shades of Gray - Ruta Sepetys
7 Hate List - Jennifer Brown
8 Looking for Alaska - John Green

This is a masterpiece from the mind of John Green

9 The Catcher In the Rye - JD Salinger
10 Wonder - RJ Palacio

Not a teen book.

This book absolutely deserves #1 on this list. It's heartwarming, funny, adventurous, all in one. I can't get enough of "Wonder" and its amazing moral.
