That’s pretty generic requirements for me to try and give advice as our taste/love for genres might be different.

When I was younger I loved stuff involving romance/mystery/friendships (Judy Blume, Agatha Christie…I forget the rest sorry) and I now like pretty much the same type of stuff romance/mystery/thriller (Sidney Sheldon, Jude Devaraux, etc).

Young Adult is 12+ so I will just list the books that have stuck in my brain and I think are for that age group.

The Friendship Ring by Rachel Vail. There are 4 different books with 4 different girls, (1 bonus book with the guy’s perspective) and while the same main events happen in each one, there is a bit of a different perspective/situation shown in each which I actually really liked for some reason. I think they are all around 13-14 in the books??

Homecoming by Cynthia Voight. Set up- Oldest Girl Dicey (think she was 16) realizes her mom has abandoned her and her siblings.

I will always Write Back by Ganda with Co-writer?? Guy and girl exchange pen pal letters throughout the years and become friends despite the status difference. (Her cute privileged American blonde girl), him from a 3rd worth country (Zimbabwe I think?) Not just letters but about their life and what they were going through at the time.

Child Called It By Dave Pelzer. About horrific abuse this kid suffered from a mentally ill woman. It made me incredibly angry/emotional so careful if you’re sensitive.

I don’t know if you like/read manga?? Might be a bit difficult as you read from right to left instead of left to right.
I really like shojo manga (for young girls so around 12-16?)- Mainly involve “fantasy romance- aka unrealistic expectations)) and these are a few of my favorite series:

Vampire Knight (Japanese version of Twilight in a way- 2 guys like the same girl)

Fruits Basket (orphan girl keeping a secret of a clan that turns into their Zodiac characters and their other deeper/darker secrets)

Ouran Host Club (girl with scholarship entrance to snooty rich school, becomes in the debt of some guys who make her pay it off, by pretty much being involved in their shenanigans)


Hope that helps. I'm assuming you want less generic answers than things like the Hunger Games but otherwise you can search for best Young Adult books, or there is certain website where if you search for a certain book/author you will find similar ones.
