I've recently been taking a Literature for Young Adults class and have come to an important discovery: not all teen literature is vapid paranormal romance. I know. Big shocker, right? So, I set up this thread for people to recommend Young Adult books that are actually good and people might want to read.
I would like to suggest:
Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi
The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
Trash by Andy Mulligan
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan
Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick by Joe Schreiber
Anyone else have suggestions?
