Free eBooks for Young Adults

It’s the end of the summer and time to get back to finding free eBooks for young adults.  There are still many to chose from, and more new books being published every day.  With such a great selection, the difficulty is in finding good ones.   Of course, what is ‘good’ is a matter of personal choice and taste.   There is no easy answer as to how to rate the available books, but this blog will focus on completed works and try to use ‘most downloaded’ and ‘best seller’ listings as a guideline for what to feature.  To get started, today’s blog posting includes one very short-time free eBook and a link to a ‘sorting’ of free eBooks for young adults as sorted on Smashwords.  Regular listings will resume on Monday next week.  Happy reading!
