There’s something so fun and sweet about a good YA contemporary novel! You may not have heard of these three, but you need to add them to your TBR ASAP.

Made You Up by Francesca Zappia

This adorable YAA novel about a girl with schizophrenia will absolutely warm your heart! The style is quirky and wonderful. You’ll read it in one sitting. 

Here’s the synopsis:

Alex fights a daily battle to figure out the difference between reality and delusion. Armed with a take-no-prisoners attitude, her camera, a Magic 8-Ball, and her only ally (her little sister), Alex wages a war against her schizophrenia, determined to stay sane long enough to get into college. She’s pretty optimistic about her chances until classes begin, and she runs into Miles. Didn’t she imagine him? Before she knows it, Alex is making friends, going to parties, falling in love, and experiencing all the usual rites of passage for teenagers. But Alex is used to being crazy. She’s not prepared for normal.

True Letters from a Fictional Life by Kenneth Logan

It’s To All the Boys, but gay. This adorable love story will sweep you off your feet. 

Here’s the synopsis:

If you asked anyone in his small Vermont town, they’d tell you the facts: James Liddell, star athlete, decent student and sort-of boyfriend to cute, peppy Theresa, is a happy, funny, carefree guy.

But whenever James sits down at his desk to write, he tells a different story. As he fills his drawers with letters to the people in his world—letters he never intends to send—he spills the truth: he’s trying hard, but he just isn’t into Theresa. It’s a boy who lingers in his thoughts.

He feels trapped by his parents, his teammates, and the lies they’ve helped him tell, and he has no idea how to escape. Is he destined to live a life of fiction?

The Vigilante Poets of Selwyn Academy by Kate Hattemer

A super funny saga of a group of friends trying to save their high school and maybe, just maybe, finding love along the way. Poetry can change the world!

Here’s the synopsis:

Witty, sarcastic Ethan and his three best friends are students at Selwyn Arts Academy, which has been hijacked by For Art’s Sake, a sleazy reality-television show. In the tradition of Ezra Pound, the foursome secretly writes and distributes a long poem to protest the show. They’re thrilled to have started a budding rebellion.

But the forces behind the show are craftier than they seem. The web of betrayal stretches farther than Ethan could have ever imagined, and it’s up to him, his friends, and a heroic gerbil named Baconnaise to save Selwyn.

What are you waiting for? Pick up one of these great YA contemporaries ASAP!
