As YA May continues, we have a great YA reading recommendation from book blogger Abby Fairbrother today, plus two more from some real YOUNG ADULTS themselves! Thanks guys!
1) 13 Minutes by Sarah Pinborough
I found this book dark, intriguing & very suspenseful. Once I reached halfway through the book, I already felt the writer had delivered with a fantastic story & characters, but that is when the real plot really began unravelling.
I think the novel really taps into the complex mindset of teenagers very well and show that ultimately it’s a very fragile time in a person’s life. I read the novel in forty eight hours and before I even put the book down, my daughter Daisy snatched it and escaped to her room, where she read it in a day.
This is the first novel myself & my daughter read together and it was interesting to find that we both took a different angle on the characters. This is really a 10* review, as we both gave it 5*!

2) Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman
My 19 year old brother loved this book as it tackles the issues of race but in a race reversal as such.
3) The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
My 14 year old daughter loves The Bone Season as she found she completely immersed herself in a whole other world. (I think they are similar to Divergent-type novels).
