Young Adult

Intrigue Publishing is proud to present a great variety of Young Adult novels. Like the Harry Potter and Hunger Games novels, these are books written for teens that are equally adored by readers of every generation. The subject matter and story lines of our YA books are consistent with the age and experience of the main characters and focus on the specific challenges of adolescents. However in our books those young people are always thrust into extraordinary circumstances and cope with them using their own brains, skill and courage.
