Hi! I’m Sara, one of the owners here at Books Series Recaps, and I built this list for other Christian parents and readers like me. I’ve been on the lookout for great YA novels written by Christian fiction authors. Are you looking for Christian fiction books for teens recommended or written by Christian authors? Here are a few I’ve found and read, and some that were suggested to me by friends, family, and trusted authors. I wouldn’t consider all of these as having an obvious Christian message, but all are written from a Christian worldview.

**This page is in progress. Please help me build this list of Christian novels for teens by adding your suggestions in the comments! I would truly love your input, so I can pass those books on to my tween and teen kids. Thank you!


All Christian YA books on our list are clean books. What is a clean book?

To me, a clean book has little to no language and no sex, sexual situations, or themes.


**AUTHORS: We’re always looking for authors who write Christian YA books. If that’s you, please list it in the comments below (no links, please). READERS, don’t forget to check the comments!
