We’re in the midst of back-to-school season, which means September’s list of great YA titles is an epic one. It’s a magical time of year, one that’s great for loading your backpack and eReader with more than just textbooks. The only downside, really, is the strain your wallet will endure.
‘Wonderful. Thank you Cassie for another series that made me more than happy and fulfilled’ I’ll be honest my heart is hurting a little bit now I’ve finished the whole of the Infernal Devices series and right now (judge me) I do prefer them over...

Jeanette Winterson said O’Neill ‘writes with a scalpel’ and, reading this book, I see it couldn’t be more true. Each page packs the emotional punch of a small fire engine, tearing and scraping away bits of your heart. By the end of the novel, I’d had run out of tissues, tears and hope.

There is something about the book Lost Stars by Claudia Gray that works where many of the recent titles in the Star Wars canon have not. One thing that is interesting right off the bat is that you will find it in a bookstore's young adult section.
True young adult fiction is intended, as the name implies, to be read both by adults and those in their late teens. I do not make allowances for my young readers in my writing, and neither do most authors.
