Truth be told, you could pick any James Baldwin book for your teen/young adult reader and you’d be winning. Go Tell It On The Mountain is his first major work – and it’s a great introduction to his breathtaking oeuvre. The novel covers two days and one night in the life of 14-year-old John Grimes as he grapples with faith, sexuality, and family dynamics. It’s a challenging pick for reluctant readers but encourage your reader to stick with it – and be prepared to talk about it afterward.
