YA Books That Make You Cry

I love to read young adult fiction books that stir up emotion. They're intense and suspenseful and leave you thinking at the end.

Danna nice list


message 2: by Tam (new)

Tam Francis What a great list. Thank you. I work as a substitute librarian at a Junior High School and although I know some of those titles, I don't know them all. Could you tell me which would be appropriate for ages 12-14?

Thanks, Tam
