What are some good books for young adults?

No book series. Just a nice read. By young adults, I don't mean teenagers.


i mean for young adults, not necessarily for teenagers

    Is there any reason why you don't want to read a series?

    If you happen to change your mind, I do recommend the Twilight series... it is only 4 books.

    There is also another series by Scott Westerfield. The first book is called The Uglies. I'm finishing up the 3rd book right now. He actually just came out with a 4th book, but I am not sure if it uses the same characters. They are very short books and fast reads.

    I could also recommend any book by Nicholas Sparks. He has some great love stories... very light reading. I am normally not a fan of romance stories, but he writes very well and I have gotten totally involved in every book I have read from him.

    Anything by Mary Higgins Clark or Carol Higgins Clark - they write really good mysteries. James Patterson writes good novels as well.

    young Adult and Teens are usually considered about the same... but since you said not teen... i used age 7-12 as a general some of these may be more challenging than others.
