Would your parents read these books?

So, I am totally cheating and x-posting something I wrote about on the adult's What To Read blog.

My question to any teens reading this is: Would your parents - or any other adults you know - read and enjoy any of these teen books?

The Hunger Games
by Suzanne Collins

Little Brother
by Cory Doctorow

by Neal Shusterman

The Knife of Never
Letting Go

by Patrick Ness

The Love Curse of the Rumbaughs
by Jack Gantos

A Great and Terrible Beauty
by Libba Bray

I'm always giving my mom teen books to read, and she's always passing them on to her co-workers. I think if more adults would pick up just one teen book, they would see how great these books are and that we definitely need more of them in the libary! (Um, I guess that means more of the teen books AND more of the adults who read teen books. Heh.)
