Best Social & Family Issues books 🏠

Curated by our reviewers this week


Welcome our new social-family-issues reviewers 👋

Alicia Chin


My blog is unique in that I bring eyes to books (both from big publishers and indie), as well as games (more indie than big). I also devote my time to maintaining my Instagram, where I post micro-reviews, show off books (their art and their stories), and interact with other #bookstagrammers.

Find your next Social & Family Issues read

From empathic depictions of mental illness to clear-eyed explorations of contemporary racism, the young adult genre has a history of facing high-stakes issues head-on.

Our Reedsy Discovery reviewers know what young readers want: smart, sensitive books that tackle the problems they confront every day, whether that’s navigating the social scene as an LGBT scene or coming to terms with a flawed criminal justice system. Under their guidance, you’ll find the best indie Social & Family Issues books — one of which could end up being the next The Hate U Give.

If you find a reviewer whose tastes really speak to you, be sure to “follow” them for access to all their future recommendations. That way, you’ll have the guidance you need to make sense of all the social issues of the day.
