This week's topic is: sister stories!
There are loads and loads of YA books out there about sisters, especially ones told from the younger sister's point-of-view. There are also loads about the older sister dying, and it seems especially popular to have the younger, quieter sister tell the story of how she finds out the older, outgoing sister isn't as perfect as she'd always seemed. I really like these books, but I'd like to see some more books about other sibling relationships.
Here are some examples of sister stories I've read and loved:
Saving June by Hannah Harrington
That Summer by Sarah Dessen
Losing Faith by Denise Jaden
Between Here and Forever by Elizabeth Scott
The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult
(I know this one isn't technically YA, but I decided to include it anyways.)
And here are some sister books I haven't read but that look great:
Tell Me a Secret by Holly Cupala
All These Lives by Sarah Wylie
The Space Between Us by Jessica Martinez
Waves by Sharon Dogar
Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma
Irises by Francisco X. Stork
Without Tess by Marcella Pixley
Never Enough by Denise Jaden
What do you think of sister stories in YA? Have you had enough, or do you want more? If you've read any of the books I mentioned, what did you think?
