Book Talk

Here are the five books that got (and kept) me interested in the young adult genre, that formed my style and themes, and that I continually look to for motivation, inspiration, and models of YA thrillers that truly WORK

1. A Garden of Earthly Delights

2. I Know What You Did Last Summer

3. Any and all of Christopher Pike’s YA thrillers (sidenote: anyone even vaguely interested in the world of YA MUST read Pike)

4. Flowers in the Attic

5. The Big Sleep (not exactly YA, but I read it as a young adult, and it still influences my current YA work)
