I call mine "Good Clean Fun." I would say the main audience is adults, but also the occasional teen who is looking for something unalarming.

Subject: [OYAN] "Clean Teen Reads:" another wording?

We are considering our teen bibliography that's historically been called Clean Teen Reads or Clean Reads.  These are books without sex, minimal violence, swearing, etc. Do you have a similar list with a different name? We are curious about how teens respond to a list with a title like this...we know we get a lot of parents who are looking for clean reads for their kids, so the language works for them...but for teens?
Have a great weekend!
