YA Literature

A slightly amorphous category but for the sake of classification, we'll say these are books for teens. Stories here span all genres and are told with a punch. 
Oh, even though we say young adult it'll be perfectly okay for grown-ups to dip their toes into the stories here too. You'll probably recognise yourself in them.
