I have two kid sisters (13 & 16) who both love fantasy (and, to a somewhat lesser degree, science fiction).
I would love to get them both some fantasy books by new authors, but as I'm not into the genre myself, I am concerned I might accidently pick up some rather "inappropriate" adult fantasy/scifi by mistake.
Would anyone be able to offer up some suggestions for adult fantasy books which have zero sexual content (their mom would kill me), but are pro-woman and otherwise suitable for very advanced teen readers (they have really outgrown the young adult genre).
Thanks so much!
Your 13 year-old sister might still enjoy (heck, I still enjoy!) the work of Justine Larbalestier. Her Magic trilogy features some terrific teenage heroines and is a very good read for all ages. You can read a little about her books here. Meredith Ann Pierce is another writer she may like.
There are others I'd recommend (Kelly Link immediately comes to mind, as does Hiromi Goto, maybe even Kit Reed) but, unfortunately, their "permissible" stories are often bundled with what would surely be "prohibited" by your sisters' mother.
I am sure LT member avaland will be able to give you better and fresher suggestions once she signs on again.
P.S. Your sisters are lucky to have such a caring big sister!
It is a book about a young girl growing up in the 60s but who belongs to a older tradition as she is the adopted daughter of a herbal healer/abortionist.
It is a story that is strongly driven by sex, although no actual sex appears in the book as far as I can remember. There is a lot about the consequences though and a pretty funny seduction scene.
There is also a little drug use in the novel if that makes a difference.
Also it isn't an epic fantasy, but very much a present day fantastical tale.
Also there's a host of mentions of different books and authors in this (strong females) thread in the Fantasy group ... some books will not be suitable for 13 years olds but the thread is worth reading... http://www.librarything.com/talktopic.php?topic=10665#111906
The Scott Westerfeld trilogy Uglies, Pretties and Specials are pretty good. The concept of "New Pretty Town" is pretty gaggy but the ideas behind the books are interesting. Again, all mixed well with action/adventure.
Much depends on what kind of fantasy they like. Big worlds? Talking animals? Magic powers? If you can tell us some of the books they've read and enjoyed we can extrapolate from there...
