Books About Teen Despair

The Guardian has a Top 10 List which covers teen despair: you can find it in the article "Sam Mills's top 10 books about the darker side of adolescence". The list is dominated by male authors (there's only one woman); I don't know if there's a significance to that or not. Is it mostly men who have a bleak adolescence? Probably not, but I do know that the one book I've read of those listed (Catcher In The Rye) didn't speak to me at all. Some of the other titles on the list include Lord of the Flies, The Outsiders, A Clockwork Orange, and Vernon God Little. Via bookshelves of doom.
