NPR polled just over 75,000 people asking their favourite teen novels of all time.
And now, the final results are in. While it’s no surprise to see Harry Potter and the Hunger Games trilogy on top, this year’s list also highlights some writers we weren’t as familiar with. For example, John Green, author of the 2012 hit The Fault in Our Stars, appears five times in the top 100.
In fact, John Green has 4 books in the top 22. Yes, he deserves it. People like John Green, Scott Westerfeld, David Levithan might be household names within YA circles, but I think there are a whole lot of people who have never heard of them but would love their work.
