What’s your favorite Y.A. novel?
Earlier I posted my top 10 favorite young adult novels, and believe me, it was no easy task. I’m never good at choosing a favorite anything, actually. But if I really had to choose my favorite, I think I’d pick Speak. I said it in my top 10 post, but this novel (besides my Y.A. class in college) is the reason I fell in love with this type of literature. Melinda is so sarcastic, honest, and tough- even though she’d never admit it. Plus, Laurie Halse Anderson is a writing genious! I love her writing style.
I bring this up because I’d love to discuss this with our book club (or anyone else reading!). What is your favorite Y.A. novel and why? Is it similar to any other novels you’ve read? Has it had an influence on your life? Share your thoughts and feelings, and comment on what others are saying.
Let’s try to start this tomorrow night (8/22) so everyone has advanced notice. Feel free to comment before that of course, especially if you won’t be available.
