New YA Books to check out

The new year has only just begun, but we have already read some awesome books. Check out three of our favorites below.



Seventeen-year-old Norah suffers from OCD, agoraphobia, and severe anxiety. Having barely left the house in years, she conducts her life mainly online between online schooling and social media. One day while struggling to get groceries off the front porch, she meets Luke, the new guy next door. Luke is kind, funny, and understanding, but how can she develop a relationship with someone when she can’t leave the house? This book has a lot of humor for such a serious topic and it will give you new insight into mental illness. Fans of Everything, Everything will enjoy this book. Grade 8+
