Talk of War
Posted by: Kaite Stover
When it comes to books on current events my discussion groups are divided. Some readers want the latest bestselling political nonfiction titles to discuss and others don’t want that much scholarly detail getting in the way of a good story.

Recently, USAToday featured four young adult novels on the Iraq war that will also appeal to adults.

The war-related topics covered in these books offer a wide spectrum of subjects–post-traumatic stress disorder, re-adjustment to civilian life, guilt over the deaths of Iraqi civilians, and even a young soldier’s memoir.

Of course, these books would be good partners to some of the headier tomes on the reading lists, but even better, consider these titles for a teens only book group or a parent-teen combo discussion.
