Definition of the "Teen and Young Adult Genre": First, it's important to define that the typical age range for this category is sixteen to twenty-five. But, don't feel bad if you're older than that range and still reading these ebooks. Some of them are monster bestsellers that everyone reads--of all ages. Setting aside the age "limitation," ebooks in the Teen and Young Adult genre are actually very broad in what fictional genres they cover. Fantasy, science fiction, horror and suspense are all genres that are encompassed in the overarching Teen and Young Adult genre. One specific aspect to these ebooks is that they oftentimes involve coming-of-age stories.
Here are some examples of bestselling ebooks in the Teen and Young Adult genre. J.K. Rowlings (Harry Potter), Stephanie Meyer (Twilight), Veronica Roth (Divergent), and Suzanne Collins (The Hunger Games).
Sometimes you have a secret, and sometimes that secret has you.
Returning to Europe means saying goodbye to her friends again, but Targa––a powerful teenage siren and water elemental––has someone she loves waiting for her on the banks of the Baltic. When those closest to her encourage her to let Antoni in on her secret identity, Targa is torn between the promise she made her mother when she was just a child, and the desire to be honest. Will she keep her secret, or reveal her true self to the man she loves?
The last thing Targa and Mira want is to be separated, but Mira grows distant as the voice of the ocean becomes urgent, and its clear she is suffering. Will Targa and Mira's close-knit mother/daughter bond be strong enough to keep the irresistible call of the mermaid's salt-cycle at bay?
When someone who shouldn’t be alive turns up, Targa and Antoni are sucked into a breathless, whirlwind adventure leading them leagues under the ocean’s surface where even Targa’s great powers cannot save Antoni from an ancient force neither of them saw coming.
You will fall in love with these characters and wish the adventure would never end! Grab your copy and fall into a world of elemental magic, love, and mermaid lore like you’ve never experienced it before!
Salt & Stone is a continuation of the Elemental Origins Series by award winning and USA Today Bestselling Author, A.L.Knorr. The Siren's Curse Series is best enjoyed if readers have read Born of Water and/or The Elementals.
INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR:
Q: What makes your writing special and different?
A: I write cuss-free, no on-page sex fantasy stories featuring strong female protagonists, and themes of love, friendship, the environment (because its something I care deeply about), while delivering a fast-paced adventure. I’ve been told my writing is very cinematic and that readers can watch it play out on the screen of their mind in full-colour as they read. My Elemental Origins Series is non-linear, meaning it doesn’t have to be read starting at book 1, you can pick up any of the first 5 books and dive in because they all take place simultaneously.
I believe its an authors job in today’s world to nurture empathy, help the reader live another life and feel what its like to be in someone else’s shoes. I try to write as believable a fantasy world as possible, with characters who value life and care for one another. My antagonists are often somewhat faceless for part of the story, providing mystery, and they are also not ‘just bad guys’, they’re people with their own world view one might understand, even if you don’t agree with it. Most of all, I just want to tell a great story and make readers feel something - I’m told I do a good job at that.
Q: Aside from Salt & Stone, what other books do you write, and what order should I read them in?
A: I also write the bestselling Elemental Origins Series that chronicles Targa and 4 other girls as they venture beyond the borders of their Canadian home and experience transformational supernatural summer adventures. I recommend reading Born of Water before reading Salt & Stone.
If you like Melissa Meyer, Tamora Pierce, Leia Stone, Jaymin Eve, Cassandra Clare, Lauren Kate, Stephenie Meyer, Becca Fitzpatrick, or Michelle Madow, you will LOVE AL Knorr’s storytelling!

Zera is a Heartless—the immortal, unaging soldier of a witch. Bound to the witch Nightsinger, Zera longs for freedom from the woods they hide in. With her heart in a jar under Nightsinger's control, she serves the witch unquestioningly.
Until Nightsinger asks Zera for a prince's heart in exchange for her own, with one addendum: if she's discovered infiltrating the court, Nightsinger will destroy Zera's heart rather than see her tortured by the witch-hating nobles.
Crown Prince Lucien d'Malvane hates the royal court as much as it loves him—every tutor too afraid to correct him and every girl jockeying for a place at his darkly handsome side. No one can challenge him—until the arrival of Lady Zera. She's inelegant, smart-mouthed, carefree, and out for his blood. The prince's honor has him quickly aiming for her throat.
So begins a game of cat and mouse between a girl with nothing to lose and a boy who has it all.
Winner takes the loser's heart.

Dark magics have ways of fighting back, and she’ll face more threats than ever before—not least of all the possibility of a long-forbidden love.

Fourteen-year-old Peter Green can’t remember how he died.
All he has are his pajamas, a silk tie, and a one-way bus ticket to Mrs. Battisworth’s Academy and Haven for Unliving Boys and Girls, a strange and spooky school for dead orphans like himself. But that’s all he needs: the Unliving Academy has everything, from vampires in the hallways, to monsters in the cafeteria, to ghosts in the basement.
And that’s just the teachers; the students are far stranger.
As Pete learns to fit in with his new supernatural schoolmates, he starts to discover his own uniquely undead abilities, and even begins enjoying his life after death…but he just can’t shake the feeling that he’s forgotten something (or somebody!) important.
Somebody he left behind in the land of the living.
Somebody he loved very much.
Somebody who’s in terrible danger.

INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR:
Q: Why should readers try this series?
A: This bold new series starts out looking at the life of a regular(ish) teen girl who’s bullied at the hands of her mother, the paparazzi and her fellow students. But what happens over this nine book series is this unfortunate girl becomes the most badass girl in all of history. Most readers will appreciate this series because there is literally nothing like it out there right now, which makes the Swann series feel fresh and yes, highly addictive.
Q: What kind of series is this?
A: Swann and Monarch (books one and two) are both human stories steeped in high school angst, bullies, difficult parents and the twisted effects of human genetic modification. The third book, Clone, kicks this world wide open, unleashing a rapidly evolving world of urban fantasy. By the ninth and final book in this series, urban fantasy will have become dark fantasy, but by then you’ll be so hooked that nothing else will matter (the author says with a Cheshire cat-like grin).
Q: What kind of readers will enjoy these books?
A: Fans of Harry Potter, Twilight, The Hunger Games and Divergent will appreciate this unique series.
Q: Are there adult themes in this series?
A: Yes. In staying authentic to the YA world, there is some strong language, violence and adult situations. I personally feel this series should be enjoyed by ages 15 and above.
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING…
“This book easily surpasses five stars. There is very uniquely constructed world with relatable problems most teens and young adults can connect to. I just love stories like these that almost can't really be put into a classification or they can be stuffed into several.”
– Rebecca, Amazon Reviewer for Swann ★★★★★
“Wow! Monarch was even better than Swann. The twists and turns were very interesting. I couldn’t put the book down, it was so good. Loved it!"
– Rose, Amazon Reviewer for Monarch ★★★★★
“This is my favorite of the first three books! It’s scripted so well that I could literally feel their feelings and pain. I cried and laughed and totally enjoyed this book. The character development is phenomenal.”
– Kierra, Amazon Reviewer for Clone ★★★★★
READING ORDER OF THE SWANN SERIES:
Finalist Award in the 2015 National Indie Excellence Book Awards, Young Adult Fiction Category.
Thanks to her offbeat mother, Shade’s full name is Galactic Shade Griffin. Having a name like that while being the new girl in school is pretty much catnip for bullies. The summer before Shade’s junior year of high school, her mother breaks up with yet another boyfriend and moves them once again to a new town.
This time, they move into a dilapidated old house where Shade has an entire attic bedroom to herself—at least until she discovers it’s haunted by the ghost of a teenaged boy named Brandon Yates. When Shade’s best friend goes missing, her life becomes even more complicated. With the help of Brandon who’s struggling with his own issues in the world beyond, Shade faces the question of whether or not she has what it takes to become a true hero.
Although this novel deals with a number of serious issues—drug and alcohol abuse, cutting, and disturbing world events—it's primarily a novel about a teenaged girl finding out who she really is and that she's capable of so much more than she ever thought possible.
