Three Fun YA Reads

I have been churning through some great YA novels lately.  Middle Sister has a group of friends that regularly visit her and go through her bookshelves to find something good to read.  So, since summer is approaching and that happens more frequently, I have enjoyed putting a few new things on her shelves.

Windfall by Jennifer E Smith- is a fun novel. Alice has long had a crush on her best friend, Teddy, who doesn't seem to notice. Things get more complicated when Teddy wins the lottery and must make some big decisions.

Waking in Time by Angie Stanton -this is a little bit romance, a little bit history, a little bit time travel.  Abbi is mourning the loss of her grandmother when she moves to college, the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  When she wakes up on her second day there she finds herself in 1983. That's just the beginning of her time travel which allows her to know her grandmother as a young woman and piece together some family secrets.

Things I Should Have Known by Claire LaZebnik is a touching novel that covers the love between siblings, a little romance, and challenges some families face.  Chloe's the younger sister, but she's always been helping her older sister, Ivy, who is autistic. As Ivy begins to wonder about things like romance, Chloe decides to help her sister find a boyfriend.  

All three of these were enjoyable and fun. I am excited to see which of Middle Sister's friends decide to read these over the summer months.
