Young Adult Novels That Teach a Growth Mindset

ward-169hero-yanovels-shutterstock

Use these novels to teach learning from loss and overcoming adversity to your middle schoolers and high school freshmen.

The following books feature protagonists of diverse backgrounds and races, many of whom reappear in compelling sequels that reinforce the initial lessons and keep students hungry for more. While these young adult books are typically middle school level, their resonant subject matter, complex characters, profound themes, vivid vocabulary, and historical contexts make them suitable as enriched reading for elementary students and as a bridge for high school freshmen.

Don’t let the youth of the protagonists fool you: All of these books are worthy of serious study—and they invite multiple readings.
