Seriously? You expect me to pick just five? I could totally do twenty-five. But I'll follow the rules. Here are five of my favorite contemporary YA novels. I can't promise they are my five favorites because I REALLY wanted to include eight and am feeling super guilty for leaving off those other three even as I post this. Anyway, here are my five.
Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
The Sky is Every Where by Jandy Nelson
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
and Spanking Shakespeare by Jake Wizner
