Books About Funny Misfit Teens

Virtually all teens go through a period where they feel like they just don't fit in. That's what makes the main characters in these novels and memoirs so relatable -- they're misfits, too (or at least they think they are!). And they're funny, too -- always a plus. For more teen stories, see our Coming-of-Age Books and Teen Romance Novels lists.
