15 Horizons – YA Transitional Books

In my ongoing list of Horizons Transitional Books, I want to include YA literature as well as adult. This is my first inclusion of YA books. I’m trying to pick books that are interesting to adults and that are thought-provoking, if not on an adult level from a writing standpoint.

The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents by Terry Pratchett
