Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish (click on the picture to visit their blog). A new Top Ten list is posted every week for fellow bloggers to participate in.
So it goes without saying (I’m going to say it anyway) that all the books I’ve chosen for this week’s Top Ten deal with the subject I’ve singled out incredibly well. Being that majority of them are YA, I also like that the story lines don’t focus solely on the tough topic; they also include other typical elements of a YA novel. In no particular order, my Top Ten is as follows:
1. Something Like Normal by Trish Doller – War and the effect it has on soldiers.
2. Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta – Depression
3. Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers – Bullying
4. Speechless by Hannah Harrington – Homophobia
5. The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson – Death of a family member
6. The Fault In Our Stars by John Green – Cancer
7. This Is Not A Drill by Beck McDowell – School shooting
8. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes – Euthanasia
9. The Boy In The Striped Pajamas by John Boyne – The holocaust
10. The Pact by Jodi Picoult – Suicide
