Can I recommend a new YA title- Candor by Pam Bachorz? It was fantastic, I thought, and the bonus is that she's a local author from Silver Spring. A friend of mine's husband also just published his first novel, also YA- it's called- Struts and Frets by Jon Skovron. I haven't read it yet, but have read some good reviews.
