About Catholic Teen Books
Do you ever find yourself saying, “My life is a mess!” God has an answer for all our problems, healing for all our wounds, and a path that will bring far greater joy than the path the world presents to us. How can we find this path, this healing, these answers?
Don’t underestimate the power of a story. A well-written story takes us into characters’ lives and lets us live through them for a while. But if the story leads us away from God and grace and goodness, what does it profit us?
Don’t underestimate the power of a story. Faith-filled fiction can entertain and take us on an exciting journey, but more importantly it can change lives. Strengthen our resolve. Help us grow in virtue. And bring us closer to God.
We are Christians. We belong to God. We are set apart from the rest of the world and called to be that light that shines in the darkness around us. It is our responsibility while on this earth—no, it is our privilege—to come to know, love and serve our amazing God, our Lord and Savior.
“See, I have set before you this day life and good, death and evil” (Deuteronomy 30:15).
Make wise choices about the movies you watch and the books you read. Your choice matters.
CatholicTeenBooks.com was founded upon the desire to provide entertaining fiction that can build your faith. And with this goal in mind, authors T.M. Gaouette and Leslea Wahl have taken it a step further by creating the Faith Through Fiction video blogs. With these vlogs we will dive into issues that teens face and present fiction that addresses relevant themes.
About the Authors
Our fiction reflects our faith with Catholic themes, characters, and perspectives. The characters in our stories struggle with challenges that we all face. Some stories follow the lives of saints, of those who dared to live counter-culturally and give themselves entirely to God. Other stories bring to light the beauty and power of the unique aspects of the Catholic faith. The Catholic element is more subtle in some works, but the worldview and themes bring the message of truth. We hope that our fiction will challenge and inspire, that it will awaken within our readers some of the mystery, joy, and beauty of the Faith. We hope to stir within our readers a desire for something beyond themselves. Because God calls everyone to the fullness of faith and happiness, we invite readers of any faith or no faith at all to read our fiction. You will find books for every teen boy or girl, middle grade through high school.
