There are SO many reasons why I read YA books.
I wrote up a guest post for Teen Librarian Toolbox 5 years ago with some of the reasons.
Besides the fact the YA books are amazingly good this is one of my biggest reasons:
There are so many things I love about YA books, but the biggest is the first moments.Teen years are the biggest moments for firsts – first kiss, first love, and first heartbreak. It’s a time for drama: family, friendships, school, job, and relationships.It’s a time for finding you’re not alone in the world.It’s a time where you learn that other people have the same questions, quirks, feelings that you have and it’s normal. It’s a time for discovery and figuring out who you really are.
