Catholic Teen Books is a lay organization of authors committed to writing and promoting exciting novels for Catholic teens in the hope of counteracting the anti-God culture that permeates society and leaves young adults with few wholesome literature choices.
What makes the fiction Catholic?
Some stories follow the lives of saints, those who dared to live counter-culturally and give themselves entirely to God. Others provide contemporary role models and bring the Faith to contemporary issues. Some shine a light on the beauty and power of the unique aspects of the Catholic faith. The Catholic element is pronounced in some and more subtle in others, allowing the worldview and themes to convey the message of truth.
Every book reflects the beauty of the Catholic faith and in some way raises the heart and mind to God, instead of dragging souls downward.
We hope that our fiction will challenge, inspire, and awaken within our readers some of the mystery, joy, and beauty of the Faith. We hope to stir within our readers a desire for something beyond themselves. Because God calls everyone to the fullness of faith and happiness, we invite readers of any faith or no faith at all to read our fiction.
We understand that everyone has different tastes in books, and that not every reader or parent will agree with every story, theme, or even genre. Please be aware that not every author on this site has read every single book represented here, and we make no claims to overstep the authority of Holy Mother Church in judgment.
If you have a question about a book or an author visit at your school, home-school group, or local library, whether in person or via Skype, go to the author’s page for contact information. We look forward to hearing from you.
