For this purpose, the puberty works which appeal to young people aged between 12-15 were analyzed by using content analysis from qualitative method in order to provide solutions and guide young people. According to findings, when the changes and possible problems that adolescents aged between 12-15 go through are examined it is seen that their choice of books reflects their states. Interests shape in relation to the traits of development era. When young people’s choice of books and problems are compared, it is seen that such themes as pursuit of similarity, self-discovery, pursuit of role model, differences in socio-economical status, norm/normlessness conflict, test anxiety and realizing opposite sex are common. It is also seen that books related to step mother/father, addiction, neglect, child sexual abuse, change of location, death of a family member/ relatives, violence by family/acquaintances and physical appearance deficiencies are not in the list of choice.
