Congratulations to Nikki, who told us that her favourite YA book was:
“Are you there God it’s me Margaret” by Judy Blume. This was banned from my school library when I was in Year Seven so became the book that everyone wanted to read. We had to sneak copies in from the ‘outside’ and on the quiet and eventually each girl in the two classes had read it. This was my first experience of censorship.
Nikki wins a brand new copy of Justine Larbalestier’s 2009 novel Liar, which is one of my favourite YA novels of the past couple of years!
There were some great comments which turn into a pretty decent reading list. If you’re interested in discovering some unusual YA favourites, check out the comments of the post!
