Teenage novels for grown-ups

These complex books play with the conventions of the genre to express the violent experience of coming of age. Eleanor Catton's "The Rehearsal" is a clever read centred around theatre and high school drama, while "The Raising" by Laura Kasischke unravels the truth behind a tragic college car crash.
