I've never really gotten into YA literature, even when I was in high school, but I've found that some can be pretty nice, even insightful, light reading.
Some I've enjoyed include:
The Distance Between Lost and Found - Kathryn Holmes
Every Day - David Levithan
An Abundance of Katherines - John Green
Someone Named Eva - Joan M. Wolf
The Hunger Games trilogy
& Ellen Hopkins for sure!
What are some that you all have enjoyed?
