Teen Volunteer 2017: Teen Romance Novels

Romance is the theme with the books on this list put together by Teen Volunteer Jana, age 12.

  • The Fault In Our Stars

    2012 by John Green

    This book would be quite delightful to readers because of the crossover appeal that it has. While it depicts a teenage boy and girl who fall in love with each other, the twists and turns of this story take down traditional teen romance cliches. If you love books with a fresh twist, you should definitely pick this up at the Skokie Public Library. A girl with cancer and a boy looking for something new—it creates the perfect story.

  • P.S. I Still Love You

    2015 by Jenny Han

    This poignant sequel will have readers hooked. I suggest readers who are interested in lighthearted romance read this book. Lara Jean didn't expect to fall for Peter—yet she did. Meanwhile another boy from Laura Jean's past love life resurfaces. Can a girl love two boys at once? P.S. I Still Love you shows how when you love you must take risks. Loving can hurt, but that's why love is so interesting.

  • My Life Next Door

    2012 by Huntley Fitzpatrick

    My Life Next Door is a gorgeous story of summer love. One summer, Jase Garret climbed Samantha's terrace and flipped her world upside down. Unfortunately, Samantha is forced to answer two questions: which of their families will save her and should she save herself? This book is an engaging story and I suggest that readers engage in reading it.

  • 100 Days

    2016 by Nicole McInnes

    100 Days truly got me hooked. Agnes has the disease progeria and only 100 days left to live, yet she doesn't know it. Her best friend, Moira, is her beloved protector. Boone is friends with both girls. The trio is inseparable until romantic feelings start to develop. I suggest that readers read 100 Days because it intertwines romance and friendship, giving it a fresh edge. It hooks the reader right from the first page, keeping you addicted and flipping page after page.
