    "I've personally never read this book to completion or watched the movie, but I can't recommend it. What I have read of the book is really bad; the main character goes through too much and it's just not a good read for a teen, especially vulnerable ones. Get them something happier."

    "This is one of the best series on the market even to date. Full of tales about love and bravery and standing up to people so much stronger or bigger than you, this is the kind of story that stays with you no matter how old you get, one that can show you that despite how bad the world seems, there's always light. While it gets a bit dark in the final books, it's still worth reading together with your child."

    "This book is a classic that should be read by adults. But for those in their impressionable teen years, this book is a nightmare of glorified profanity, vulgarity, underage drinking, and prostitution. Not only is the main character a vulgar and reprehensibly behaving teen, he is also disparaging towards minorities and women. Let your kids read this book when they are adults, and have the experience and common sense not to emulate the behavior of this character."

    "As an extremely well known series, there have been dozens of articles published about Twilight in the years since its release. What I have to say about it, however, is that this is not a series I'd recommend for anyone, let alone impressionable teens. The relationship between the main characters is unhealthy to the nth degree, and that's on top of atrocious writing and character development. Get them Lord of the Rings; it's better by leagues."

As Star Wars is such a popular and timeless movies your teens are familiar with the characters and events in these books but as you know, books have more depth.
