Six Favorite Young Adult Books (part 2)

  1. Enchantée, Written by Gita Trelease

The Paris in Enchantée, the book with an evocative and gloriously rich setting, seems like a character in its own right. It tells the story of a girl having illusion-based magic abilities, disguising herself as an aristocrat to gain entrance to the most elite gambling circles of Versailles with the hope of making enough money to support herself and her sister. However, she falls for a brilliant young balloonist and it turns out that nobody is what they seem.

  1. If I Was Your Girl, Written by Meredith Russo 

The romantic book If I Was Your Girl follows a young girl trying to start a new life in a new town. The romances and friendships blossoming as well as  the family relationships strengthening in this book can make us move to tears  when we finally turned the last page. It is really the happy-ending romantic book that we’ve all been waiting for. This sweetie romance will break your heart and stitch you and your beloves back together again in the most wonderful way. I think that it will change so many lives.

  1. The Fever King, Written by Victorie Lee

Publisher’s Synopsis: “In the former United States, sixteen-year-old Noam Álvaro wakes up in a hospital bed, the sole survivor of the viral magic which killed his family and made him a technopath. His ability to control technology attracts the attention of the minister of defense and thrusts him into the magical elite of the nation of Carolinia.”

Noam, the son of undocumented immigrants, has devoted his life to fight for the rights of the refugees who had fled the magical outbreaks, the refugees from Carolinia who routinely deport with vicious efficiency. To make change, Noam accepts the offer of the minister to teach him the science behind his magic and secretly plans to use it against the government. But after he meets the cruel, dangerous, and beautiful son of the minister, the way forward becomes less clear.

Caught between his heart and his purpose, Noam has to decide who he can trust and how far he is willing to pursuit the greater good.
