SPONSORED: Coming-of-Age Adult Books with YA Appeal and Male Protagonists

Thanks to Farrar, Straus & Giroux’s adult division, this season Macmillan Library is all about boys and their adventures in growing up: the boys whose DIY robot bests MIT, the teens who attend a terrifyingly real boarding school (in the future), and the guys who use gaming as a means of salvation from crippling isolation. We’re getting to know them all. Won’t you join us?

“Davis takes what could have been another feel-good story of triumphant underdogs and raises the stakes by examining the difficulties of these young immigrants in the context of the societal systems that they briefly and temporarily overcame.”—Publishers Weekly

GOODHOUSE by Peyton Marshall/Available Now

“A cut above the strong recent crop of dystopian futures, with a sympathetic protagonist, a believably degenerated society, and harrowing pacing, this deserves a wide audience.”—Library Journal, starred review
