I'm in the mood for a YA read. Any suggestions? Something light maybe. Not so heavy. The last one I read involved sexual abuse. Not looking for that deep of a story.

1. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is great!

2. "Dog Boy" is a short story by Charles de Lint I read on my Kindle.

3. Ashen Winter by Mike Mullin I think that's the name of the 1st book in the series, it's about when the supervolcano under Yellowstone explodes and most of the country is destroyed.

4. Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne Is also about survival after climactic weather.

5. Dawn by Octavia E. Butler Is about what humans must give up when aliens come to Earth to 'save' us. 

I'm currently reading and enjoying Conversion by Katherine Howe, which is YA too.
