What are the best teen sci-fi books?
Just looking for opinions.
Twilight... of course Lol. I hear the books are actually very interesting
Robert Heinlein: Podkayne of Mars, Orphans of the Sky, Citizen of the Galaxy.
Larry Niven: Integral Trees, Dream Park, Barsoom Project
Orson Scott Card: Enders Game
I read more fantasy than sci-fi, but A Wrinkle in Time and Ender's Game are both classic YA sci-fi, and I'd recommend just about anything by Isaac Asimov as being enjoyable and appropriate for teens too. I also enjoyed the Pern books by Anne McCaffery as a teenager, and some of the better Star Trek novels, such as Spock's World.
Edgar Rice Burroughs, Mars Series, Isaac Asimov and Andre Norton, I read them avidly as a teen and still enjoy them now as a adult.
John Marco is a fantastic author and he normally sticks to the fantasy genre, like his Bronze Knight trilogy. However, he's recently taken it a bit more modern with his latest book Starfinder, Book 1 in the Skylords Series. There are mystical aspects to it, but it has a very strong Steampunk feel to it when I read it. It's classified as YA, and I highly recommend it.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins is a recent YA sci-fi read. It has a Battle Royale style plot in a futuristic dystopian world.
Haven't yet read the sequel Catching Fire but my sister says its great. One book of the trilogy remains.
Also, I second the recommendations for Ender's Game and the Wrinkle in Time Quintet. If you enjoyed Ender's Game, then Ender's Shadow is another thrilling read. It takes the same major events of EG and explores them from the perspective of another character, Bean.
