There are many good reads in the post-apocalyptic/dystopian genres. Consider these:
- Blood Red Road by Moira Young. Post apocalypse, a teen girl chases after the men who kidnapped her twin brother, and gets help from a charming scoundrel along the way.
- The Shore of Monsters by David Nix. With all men dead or ruined by a monster-bourne plague, women carry on through medical means. When teenager Sky is abandoned in monster-infested ruins, she gets help from an unexpected source - the first normal boy she has ever seen.
- The Declaration by Gemma Malley. With everyone taking eternal youth drugs, children are considered surplus and relegated to servitude. A teen girl and boy escape from their service to seek those who reject the drugs and the world it has created.
- Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackmon. In an alternate reality UK, a dark-skinned majority rules a white-skinned minority. When a dark-skinned girl and light-skinned boy fall in love, a disastrous romance results, with national implications.

Justice (Deck of Lies, #1) Just finished reviewing this.
Will posr ro my blog later. I liked it. A couple of holes, but just the right voice for a YA. I think there's four in the series.

I just self-published a young adult realistic fiction novel, "Throwaways." It is set in 1984 where the main character deals with high school relationships and horrific actions taking place at a veterinary clinic where he works part-time. There is suspense and humor. I highly recommend this to animal lovers and young people interested in veterinary medicine or animal welfare.

Kathy Reichs has a new series out for teenagers (and adults) if like me you like her books.
Virals was the 1st book, followed by Seizure and Code has just come out.
The Northern Lights series by Phillip Pullman are also worth a try.

Not the place for self-promo Rachelle. Read the 'Important Announcement from Amazon' where all is explained.

For good young adult novels I would recommend Spanish author Carlos Ruiz Zafon - so far I think only two of his young adult novels have been translated into English but they are really good, kind of dark thrillers - good for adults too (like me) - the ones I have read so far are The Prince of Mist and The Midnight Palace - and to be released soon are Marina and The Watcher in the Shadows. His adult novels are also brilliant and can't see why a young adult wouldn't enjoy those as well - they are a kind of trilogy - Shadow of the Wind, The Angel's Game and The Prisoner of Heaven.

Take a look at Amazon's policy on self promo, only allowed in the MOA, chances are your post will be deleted for infringing the rules.
