Non-fiction titles can be a scary place for teens to venture into. They think most non-fiction titles are boring compared to fiction titles, where they can live vicariously through the characters and plot.
But who’s to say you can’t do that with a great non-fiction title?
One thing all of these titles share (besides the fact they are non-fiction) is that they are also pieces of history or social issues textbooks don’t write about.
Some have lots of texts, others have very few. Some are graphic novels, others are narrative non-fiction. Whatever they choose, all of these are full of illustrations and photographs, which is the draw that pulls teens to non-fiction.
