Ten Must-Read YA Novels You've Probably Never Heard Of

Just like adult fiction, popular YA books such as The Hunger Games or Divergent are not representative of the sheer diversity of titles and authors out there. John Hansen, creator of #VeryRealisticYA, explores some of the totally unique YA books youíve probably not come across but really ought to look upÖ

Gabi, A Girl in Pieces by Isabel Quintero
Isabel Quinteroís novel feels like an anthology of high school issues: body image (Gabiís), teen pregnancy (her best friendís), coming out (her other best friendís), strict religion (her auntís), drug addiction (her fatherís), poetry, and worries about college (both Gabiís). Told through Gabiís diary, the book is tragic, hilarious, and always whip-smart. Itís also, Iím sure, one of the most diverse and all-encompassing YA novels out there.
