“The Fault in Our Stars”
Why it’s sexy:
Augustus had Hazel at “hello.” Or “hi.” Or whatever he first said to her. The guy has a silver tongue—and he doesn’t just use it for kissing. With their first meeting topping the list, the teen lovers in “The Fault in Our Stars” have some of the best conversations we’ve read in a novel, period. The only problem: The banter may make you wonder why no boy or girl ever talked to you like this. Thanks a lot, John Green.

What’s the most underrated YA book?
There is no such thing as a soulmate…and who would want there to be? I don’t want half of a shared soul. I want my own damn soul.
Susane Colasanti has kicked off her “Help Wanted” video series on Bookish’s YA channel! Watch her first vlog and get your answers to these pressing questions:
- I really like this boy, but he’s not that attractive and my friends have made fun of him. What do I do?
- I really like this guy, but I’m his #2 choice and he’s sending mixed signals. How do I handle this?
- How do I keep from throwing away my first kiss when there’s all this pressure?
Jesse and Celine got their happy (somewhat) ever after in Before Midnight—so why can’t these YA couples have the same chance? We envision how four couples could meet up again in the future—older, wiser, for better or for worse.

Looking for the perfect book for summer? We’ve boiled down this season’s must-reads in fiction, YA, mystery and romance.
Certainly, the list of changes in today’s world is longer than the one in mine, but so is the availability of information and resources about how to cope. “Harder” is a mindset, not a fact of life in today’s teen world. Life changes minute by minute; what in today’s world is difficult beyond belief to face prepares us for tomorrow. That’s the legacy of growing up: We survive the process. And sometimes, we’re even fortunate enough to be able to write about it.
