Carole Add Magic and Misery by Peter Marino --

Cece Add Far From Xanadu by Julie Anne Peters
Add Mosh Pit by Kristyn Dunnion


message 4: by Rhiannon (new)

Rhiannon Fruit (later retitled The Secret Fruit of Peter Paddington) has, in my opinion, one of the most original voices in contemporary YA lit. It should most definitely be added to this list.


Moderatrix Lori If you like YA M/M Romance, be sure and check out the YA M/M Romance group.
