So it’s YA May and one of my reading buddies asked, ‘Who is your favourite YA author?’
I didn’t even pause to think! For me, there’s only one definitive YA author and that’s Sarah Dessen. Her novels set in Wildflower Ridge are my absolute favourites. I love how relevant her stories of dysfunctional families, teenage angst are, plus the idea that ‘behind closed doors’ all is NOT what it seems.
My favourite of Dessen’s is probably Along For The Ride. Auden’s teenage loneliness, plus the beach town storyworld in which she lives feels really authentic to me. It’s one of the few books I’ve read more than once, too!
