Free Young Adult and New Adult Books for Kindle
Cat and the Dreamer by Annalisa Crawford

As a teenager, Julia survived a suicide pact, while her best friend Rachel died. Julia’s only escape from her guilt, and her mother’s over-protection, is her imagination.

When Adam arrives in the office, Julia’s world takes a startling turn as she realises reality can be much more fun than fantasy. Finally she has someone who can help her make the most of her life.

But can she allow herself to be truly happy?
Girl at Sea by Maureen Johnson

Sometimes you have to get lost . . .

The Girl: Clio Ford, seventeen, wants to spend the summer smooching her art-store crush, not stuck on a boat in the Mediterranean. At least she'll get a killer tan.

The Mission: Survive her father's crazy antics. Oh, and also find some missing underwater treasure that could unlock the secrets of civilization.

The Crew: Dad's wacky best friend Martin, his bizarre research partner Julia, her voluptuous daughter Elsa . . . and then there's Aidan, Julia's incredibly attractive, incredibly arrogant assistant.

What's going on behind Aidan's intellectual, intensely green eyes, anyway?

As Clio sails into uncharted territory she unveils secrets that have the power to change history. But her most surprising discovery is that there's something deeper and more cryptic than the sea—her own heart.

. . . to find what you're looking for
Free young adult books from AmazonWater and Fire by Melinda McDonald

Springfield Illinois 1906. The hometown of The Great Emancipator, Abraham Lincoln, seethes with racial hatred and Negroes are limited to homes in the impoverished Badlands or to businesses on the vice-ridden Levee. A young Negro woman, Sheba Tully, ventures into this simmering cauldron of tensions in search of a better life. After landing a coveted position as a maid for Susan Lawrence Dana, one of the wealthiest and most notorious women in town, she meets Elliott Loper, an attractive white reporter for the Springfield Record. Elliott's goal: to become a respected journalist at any cost. As Sheba and Elliott pursue their dreams, the pair encounter obstacles and romance, with explosive consequences. Culminating with the city's 1908 race riot, Water and Fire vividly recreates life in Springfield at the turn of the century, populated with people of the time including poet Vachel Lindsay, Illinois Governor Charles Deneen, Eva Carroll Monroe, and Frank Lloyd Wright.
In Between by Jenny B. Jones

She wasn’t searching for a family. They weren’t looking for a daughter.


When the case worker drops Katie Parker off at her new foster parents’ home, Katie knows she’s not staying. In the time it takes to unpack her suitcase, she’s launched a full-scale mission to get sent back to the girls’ home. Live with a pastor and his wife? No, thank you. When phase two of the plan backfires and lands Katie in big trouble, her punishment lands her in a local production of Romeo and Juliet. What does she know about acting? But when she steps into the spotlight, Katie will find more than applause waiting for her on that old, weathered stage.

While Katie slowly adjusts to life with her foster parents, she’ll realize she’s not the only one with a troubled past. Her new family is hiding something, and Katie will do whatever it takes to get to the bottom of it. Even if that means hanging out with her insane foster grandma, Mad Maxine. If this old lady’s shenanigans don’t get them both thrown in jail, surely Katie will live to uncover the Scott family secrets.

As Katie navigates her new world, she’ll learn that heartbreak comes in all shapes and sizes and love is what makes a family—if she’ll let it. When it’s time to say goodbye, will Katie give it all up to return to her old ways? Or will she finally embrace a new-found faith and a new beginning …in this place called In Between?

In the Middle of Nowhere by Julie Ann Knudsen

A TEENAGE GIRL. A BROKEN HEART. AND A BOY WHO TRIES TO MEND IT.

Butterflies. Little, fluttering butterflies. That’s what fifteen-year-old Willow Flynn feels in the pit of her stomach every time the mysterious boy is near. But Willow has other things to contend with as she deals with the tragic loss of her father, as well as her emotionally preoccupied mother, while being uprooted to a new house, a new school, a new life, far away, on an island, in the middle of nowhere.

At the beginning of the school year, the sickly, but cute Michael sends Willow the first of many cryptic notes during homeroom. He stares at Willow and gives her the creeps. Michael never returns to school after that, but Willow ends up connecting with the poetic boy on-line where they strike up an unusual friendship.

As Willow attempts to fit in and find her niche in the ever-cliquey high school world, she is further confused by Michael who strives to win her over and mend her broken heart. But will he be able to, especially when his own existence remains so uncertain?

“Do you have any idea how it feels? To not be able to interact like a normal person? To have this thing inside you that won’t let you breathe? To doubt every single decision you make?”

Blue is not like any other seventeen-year-old girl. For starters, she chose her own name. She’s a loner, focuses on her art day in and day out. Oh...and, she suffers from severe anxiety. Her whole life Blue has felt like she doesn’t fit in and for once in her life, she would like to be normal. Then one night she meets Jasper Howell, an aspiring author who saves her life. Now Blue needs to learn how to deal with her anxiety, accept herself, and learn to live again.

The Enemy Hypothesis by Amy Sparling

Abby Pena’s hands are full this year. Between school and helping her grandma wrangle her three younger sisters, there is no time for an after-school job, and certainly no money in the budget to get a car. When Brazos High announces a brand new school-wide contest, everyone thinks it sounds lame. Until they learn the winner of the contest gets a brand new car.

Mark Caputo is living a lie. His family owns a popular restaurant in town and their favorite pastime is being rich. Only… they’re not rich. His parents’ constant pressure to look the best and be the best has Mark on edge. This new car could give his parents some much needed financial help. Too bad he’s starting off this school contest in last place.

Abby and Mark have their own reasons for wanting the car, and so does the rest of the school. As tensions rise and students scramble to win the contest, Abby finds herself battling for first place with the last person she’d ever expect: the super cute Mark Caputo, her new mortal enemy.
