These are really good stuff in youth adult. I like reading young adult stuff as they are fast read and more story in it.


Sometimes, the writer of literature goes on and on about "feeling" that bored me so much.


I don't read "love story" as I consider them really in need of communication. A few phone calls or email would have solved the "misunderstanding" that goes on for hundred of pages.


So. Please write some good ones. Some are not so good and these, for me, are among the best of YA.
