Gayle Forman recommends
Wild Awake (2013)
Hilary T Smith
"This absorbing debut expolres that most profound mystery of all love."
I'll Give You the Sun (2014)
Jandy Nelson
"Both structurally virtuosic . . . and emotionally wrenching. That alone is a rare combination in literature, YA or otherwise. But then add in the characters . . . This book is a rebuttal to anyone suggesting YA, because it tells stories of young people, is somehow of lesser stuff. I’ll Give You The Sun is literature. Full stop. In my opinion, it’s not just the best YA book of the year, but one of the best books of the year."
The Astonishing Color of After (2018)
Emily X R Pan
"Magic and mourning, love and loss, secrets kept and secrets revealed all illuminate Emily X.R. Pan's inventive and heart-wrenching debut."
Breath Like Water (2020)
Anna Jarzab
"Expansive, romantic, and powerful."
Again Again (2020)
E Lockhart
"E. Lockhart has done it again in this twisty, inventive, philosophical and romantic story about the many ways a person can find, lose, and understand love."
The Mall (2020)
Megan McCafferty
"Both a laugh-out-loud pean to those bygone cathedrals of the 1990s, and a zippy coming-of-age tale."
