Hi B.Morris,

You may want to take a look at some of these. I always keep an eye out for postings from the YA Book Reads blog when looking for new books (kindle or paperback) to get my teen girls and they recently posted what they say are their current Top Ten YA awareness books. Most of these books will likely deliver the teen issue element you are looking for but with a read that will pack a punch. My girls have read three off this current list and loved them all. Check out the YA Book Reads blog for more info, however the list goes like this;

Impulse - by Ellen Hopkins
Speak - by Laurie Halse Anderson
Crank - by Ellen Hopkins
Hunger - by Jackie Morse Kessler
OTOLI -by Bryony Allen
Rage (Horsemen of the Apocalypse) - by Jackie Morse Kessler
Wintergirls - by Laurie Halse Anderson
Perfect - by Ellen Hopkins
If I Stay - by Gale Forman
LOOKING FOR ALASKA - by John Green

That should be enough to be getting on with!

Johnathan

Sisterhood of The Travelling Pants are a great series, the kind I keep coming back to every summer like old friends! They're good if you like romance/friendship/grow up books.

The Mediator series are really good so is the Beautiful dead series all about the dead in one for or other but a love story thrown in the mix once you read one you wont be able to put them down. Enjoy.

You might like 'The Secrets of Yiamergin.' Its teenage fantasy fiction with some action and also has romance in it too. Take a peek on Amazon and see what you think.

I won't plug my own books (that would be rude!) but if you like romance 'I Capture The Castle' is right up there, and you might like books by Gillian Shields who did a romantic trilogy set in Norfolk.

Hi
You might try "Melisa" by Maisie Jewkes.
It's all about love and rommance. Melisa falls in love with an older man and stuggles with her feelings.
It's a short book, and a light read, but is set in lovely locations (Venice, Florence). It is more unusual but worth a try.

Hiii, im 12 and i also like a good ya fiction book with romance :D, but have you tried dystopian books?
Dystopian books are basically fiction books set in the future but a BAD future (basically the oposite to utopia
with means a futuristic paradise) there are alot out there but a VERY famous one is the hunger games (wich
you probably have heard of as it is a major motion picture)

there are tons of websites about dystopian romances as well so im sure you'll find one you'll like - hope i helped

you should really read
halo----- favorite books in the world
or hades by alexandra adornetto
also there is carrie jones with the books in the "need" series
or avrilyne pike with the wild and spells series, or melissa dela cruz with the vampire series called blue bloods

i was just like you- not finding anything good to read, but then i got into Jaqueline Wilson books and then started off on teenage romance!

Sudden LEP, This was like going back in time! These were the books that I loved to read at that age. Typical books for a girl but then one day I went to my uncle's house and he introduced me to Sudden - westerns. I've just been to see if they are still available and they are! Excellent reads - 15 books! Looked again and I've just seen that they are not being printed now and there are three second hand copies available - 25, 94.99 or 750! Perhaps the publisher could put the books on Kindle?

I am a teenage girl and some of my favourite books to read are:
- I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith (has been mentioned a lot here!)
- The Twilight Saga (to be honest, I got bored after the first book but the first one is BRILLIANT and very romantic)
- Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
- Artichoke Hearts (can't remember who it's by, sorry! It might be a little young for you, I read it when I was about 11, but it's a quick and easy read to try)
- Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
- Animal Farm by George Orwell (not romantic but very thought provoking, deep, a page turner)
Good luck and enjoy your reading! Keep looking : )

Try THE HAUNTING OF RAKERS WOOD - a ghost story and a tale of teenage love under threat from a parent intent on breaking up a loving relationship.
