Today we're discussing our favorite dark YA books. That's a tough one. Almost all the YA books I read could be called dark. The YA books I write are dark too. That's just kind of where my mind goes...
So first up, anything by Laurie Halse Anderson. Her books deal with dark subject matter with a style and grace I can only aspire to.
Hate List by Jennifer Brown. A fantastic exploration of the aftermath of a school shooting from the POV of the shooter's girlfriend. It doesn't get much darker than that.
Delirium by Lauren Oliver. I wasn't sure I was going to like this one, but I totally fell in love with the idea of a world where love was considered a disease to be cured and that there are people who fight against it in order to feel.
And those are just a few that pop to mind... I'm sure there are others I've forgotten that I like just as much. What are your favorite dark YA Books?
