Bloggers, Readers... I need your help.
When you think about the YA genre, which authors automatically come to mind? Who, in your opinion, is a staple in YA? Whose books have changed your life and shattered your earth? If a friend asked you, "hey, I'm interested in YA, who should I start out with?" who would you recommend?
There's an ultimate purpose in this, but right now I just really super duper bigtime need your feedback! :)
Please leave me a comment and know that I'm mentally hugging you for doing so. Thanks, guys!
