Since I’ve been reading and loving a lot of YA contemporary books lately, I decided to come up with a list of some amazing books that I think people who don’t usually read YA contemporary would love.  All of these are favorites of mine.  Some are light and fun, while others are more serious and shine a much-needed spotlight on important social issues and, in some cases, mental health issues.  All of these books are so good that I think they could turn any reader into a fan of YA contemporary even if it’s not usually your thing.
