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.

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!
