In honor of TeenTober, a nationwide celebration of teens hosted by libraries every October, Grand County Library District (GCLD) would like to present a list of titles, all written by teenagers. Some are classics and some are contemporary, but all are worthwhile reads. Enjoy!

Eragon by Christopher Paolini. A fantasy novel full of dragons and knights, Paolini’s first book became a bestseller when he was only 19 years old. He has also written several sequels in the series. Eragon was even turned into a movie.
