Let's not let paranormal and dystopian YA overshadow the beautifully written and heartbreaking realistic fiction in the teen lit world!
I have a few recommendations for you if you prefer the latter:
If you liked the unlikely romance of Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell, then try Like No Other, by Una LaMarche far superior, in my humble opinion.
If you liked and were empowered bySpeak by Laurie Halse Anderson and The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart, then please give Wildlife by Fiona Wood and Gabi, A Girl in Pieces by Isabel Quintero a try.
If you liked and cried over The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, then try Zac & Mia by A.J. Betts.Posted by kathryn at December 31, 2014 03:24 PM
