Are you looking for new teen books by Christian authors? I’m constantly searching for clean contemporary, science fiction, romance, historical, and Christian fantasy books for teens and tweens—not only for my own kids but also for yours!
Hey, I’m Sara, and I love to share clean reading suggestions for teens and adults. As I discover new books, I’ll pass those on to you! Sign up now!
I aim to create an ongoing list of fiction titles published within the last several years. So far, my search has yielded some fantastic results!
I’ve read many of the books on this list, but some were suggested by trusted friends and even other Christian authors. Not all of these books contain a religious message. Some were written by a Christian author for a wider audience and read more like a clean, secular book. (Clean, meaning little to no language and no sex or sexual situations.)
Keep scrolling to see my suggestions for new young adult books by Christian authors, and check back often because I’ll be adding more. If you need more suggestions, take a look at the list my friend and I compiled in our blog post called Clean Books for Teens, Tweens, or Anyone (mostly secular authors). Happy reading!
***Readers, please suggest your favorite young adult Christian authors in the comments
