Bisexual books for teens

See also

Until a few years ago, there was no such thing as a bisexual book for the Teen/Young Adult (YA) market. However, publication of this category is now ramping up. There are almost as many new YA bisexual books this year, as all the previous years combined. Although these books were created with the teen reader in mind, they could be interesting to adult readers as well.
