For two years I've read almost exclusively YA, and especially YA with some kind of fantasy elements: either high fantasy, paranormal, etc.
So I really don't know what's out there, contemp-wise. But I'd love to find out!
Would you help a girl out and name some great contemp books that you liked?
... Here's where I'm going to be a pain in the butt, though (sorry!)
I'd really like for the recommendations to be "clean," or at least, *minor* sexual content/drug-and-alcohol content, please. Nothing too gritty, like Thirteen Reasons Why or The DUFF or anything like that. The reason I'm being picky is because I'm going to put these rec's on my "local blog" for middle school/high school kids and their parents, and I'd feel comfortable recommending stuff that would be appropriate and suitable for as many kids as possible :)
Thank you guys so much! I really appreciate it :D
