MTV Books is publishing a line of original fiction for teens. Though the line dominantly publishes realistic dramas, the line also offers sci-fi, horror, suspense, and romance. Some are thought-provoking and smartly shocking, while others are fun summer reads. Here are snapshot specs of the imprint's major fiction releases, in order of publication.

If a title is bold, I've read it. Linked titles lead to my reviews. Linked author names lead to my interviews.
