Books 12th Grade

Updated on September 21, 2012

Library Books for Twelfth Graders


Books 12th Grade

This book list includes most of the best books for young adults in 12th grade and provides links to purchase many of the books, cliff notes, and summaries. The list also includes some titles that are slightly beyond 12th grade, because simply put, there aren’t many books written at this level. Most books, newspapers, and magazines are written at a far lower ability level, typically between 4th-7th grade. Consequently, you’ll find that many of the novels written at the 12th grade level are classics. If you don’t find what you’re looking for on this list, you might try the book list for 11th or 10th grade. The difference, in terms of ability level, among books of these levels is minimal, and I would highly encourage you to look at all of these lists. Also, book levels are based on reading difficulty, not content or plot. Many books are highly readable but challenging in different ways, typically incorporating symbolism and other important literary devices. Again, it is entirely appropriate to read books above or below the reading level you are targeting if the book challenges the reader in other ways, perhaps in a provocative way.
