You might enjoy Worst Impressions: A Novel (The Jane Series)

It's Pride & Prejudice with African-American teen characters. Very funny romantic comedy. And only 2 bucks. :)

It's the first in a series.

How about the Airhead trilogy by Meg Cabot?

Also many of my friends seemed to enjoy the noughts and crosses trilogy by Malorie Blackman. They also seemed to like the Gallagher Girls trilogy, though I haven't read them myself, so don't know if you would be interested.

The books I quite liked, some of my favourite is the Inheritance cycle by Christopher Paolini; Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr and Inheritance.

The Keys to The Kingdom series was quite good, but slightly slow at the start of the first book.

Sorry if these have already suggested

The Secret Circle trilogy by L.J.Smith are a brilliant read they include a mixture of mystery and romance. Also the Gallagher Girls series which are funny and exciting at the same time, the first one is.
I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You (Gallagher Girls)

The House of Night series by PC Cast and Kristin Cast are different but be warned a little graphic and a few F words here and there definitely worthy of the content warning on the back.

I think that my ebook might be the sort of thing you're looking for. It's calledFreeing Fergus Reilly and it's got a romance which was very popular with my beta readers (apparently they fell in love with Fergus). There's also a bit of gritty realism in the form of Fergus's relationship with his father. And there's horses too!

I'm a school librarian and I've recently uploaded In the Land of the Demon Masters and Bugtown. Both loved by pupils at my school!!

Read Bugtown. Go for a bit of class and something not important!

You have to read Patrick Ness's The Knife of Never Letting Go (the second and third parts are not so good, but the first one is amazing).

Hi Margaret!
You have great taste in books! I think you might like Raven, its the first in a series of YA urban fantasy. Here is a description to see if you'd be interested in it or not... After the inexplicable disappearance of Lilly Taylor's parents, she has no choice but to move to Canada where she unravels some frightening yet intriguing family secrets...
Her whole life had been based on a lie. Lilly had grown up in a loveless home with a father who she had barely ever seen and a mother who was... well, not very motherly.
After they mysteriously disappear without a trace, Lilly is sent to Canada where she finds a whole new way of life. A life filled with love and people who care for her. But that's not all she discovers, Lilly also finds out that she isn't who, or what, she thinks she is.
Lilly has a very special ability and it's just a matter of time before her true self starts to shine. And when it does, her life will never be the same again.
Raven is a fantasy novel for children and young adults set in the beautiful province of British Columbia.

Review
'From the very beginning of this fast paced and imaginative book I was hooked. I couldn't put it down until the very end. I will be on the lookout for more books by Kim Richardson. I highly recommend this book!'
--Geeky Girl Reviews

Sixteen year-old Kara Nightingale's ordinary life is suddenly turned upside-down when she dies in a freak accident, and she wakes up in a strange new world with a new career-as a rookie for the Guardian Angel Legion. Kara hurtles towards dangerous missions with the help of her Petty Officer and friend, David.

But when she discovers a Mark on her leg, the entire Legion accuses her of being a Demon spy. Angels are dying, and David begins to pull away from her. Can Kara prove her innocence as she becomes the Legion's only hope?

It's going to take a miracle to save the Legion, and Kara's luck has just run out...

I usually read paranormal fiction/romance. But i picked up Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles. Nothing paranormal about this but a beautiful love story. (But heads up there's a steamy sex scene).

Would recommend Louise Lawrence - Children of the Dust, Moonwind etc. Sticks in your mind. I read it when I was fourteen and it hasn't gone away!
Sarah Stovell - Mothernight. Some older themes (is traditionally Young Adult), but if your 15-16 its fine.
The Assassin's Apprentice, Royal Assassin & Assassin's Quest - Robin Hobb. First person. Fitz is moany, but its pretty good. Read her early stuff & her stuff as Megan Lindholm. From Soldier Son onwards I personally think it went down hill.
Flowers for Algernon - I cried - a lot. Warning: science fiction
Before I Die - Jenny Downham - more crying
Rebecca - Daphne du Maurier. Some people love it, others hate it. Best to judge for yourself.
Tamora Pierce - Start with her early stuff and move on. Traditional, female-based, feminist (in her early work) fantasy. Not really minding bending.
The Dragonbone Chair -Tad Williams. Take note about the warning in the beginning not to read the end! Traditional fantasy, but well-written.
Would also second "I Capture the Castle" by Dodi Smith. Really good. The writing isn't pacy, but like "Gone With The Wind" it grabs you.

Sorry - lots of books there. I am sure that you will find plenty to read though.

Hi Margaret,
I'd strongly suggest Watchers by Essi Tolling. It has all the elements you're looking for (except the romance maybe) and sounds like the perfect read for you.
Tilly Greenway and the Secrets of the Ancient Keys, Book One - Watchers

The TRACES series by Malcolm Rose, the Bartimeaus Trilogy by Jonathon Stroud and the CHERUB and Henderson Boys series, both by Robert Muchamore are all worth a look

I've recently written a YA contemporary romance called Cold Water which you might enjoy. It's available for 2.19.
Love, drama, angst, secrets and a pyromaniac :)

Chris Howard has a new YA book out called Teller, and the main characters are teenagers. I absolutely love Taryn, the main character's best friend.

Teller (The Rootworld Cycle)

I also think you should try the Seaborn books. Kassandra, the main character in Saltwater Witch is fifteen.

Seaborn

HI Margaret, Have you tried Tilly Greenway and the Secrets of the Ancient Keys, Book One - Watchers
There's so much in this one, it's hard to put it into any specific category. Most important thing for me to to really like the characters. This one's a real classic-in-the-making.
