2021 Top Five

Like in 2020, I haven’t read nearly as much YA as I wanted to/should have, so here is a leaner, meaner list of my top five best YA reads of 2021. Please note that there has been absolutely no attempt to balance this list by age, gender or genre. These are just my “from-the-gut” favorites of the books I read this year. Click on the title to go right to the review and happy new year! May 2022 be Y/OUR year!

The Box in the Woods by Maureen Johnson

Just Like That by Gary D. Schmidt

Love is a Revolution by Renee Watson

A Sitting in St. James by Rita Williams-Garcia

Sometimes You Have to Lie: The Life and Times of Louise Fitzhugh, Renegade Author of Harriet the Spy by Leslie Brody

One thought on “2021 Top Five

  1. I loved Just Like That—I read & love all of Gary D. Schmidt’s books! I just put the Rita Garcia Williams book on my kindle and will def delve into your other favorites, thank you!
