>If you liked The Kite Runner….


To coincide with the December 14 release of “The Kite Runner,” the film adaptation of Khaled Hosseini’s best-selling novel, the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), the fastest-growing division of the American Library Association (ALA), created a list of companion titles.

“The Kite Runner” details the friendship between two Afghani boys against the backdrop of the extraordinary events that have taken place in Afghanistan in the past twenty years. “The Kite Runner” was named one of YALSA’s 2004 Alex Award winners, which honor adult books with specific teen appeal. Given the book’s popularity among young adults, YALSA’s Booklist Taskforce created a list of ten similar books to recommend to teens. Check out the list here.
