Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

Some couples in young adult novels seem so real that it is like you know them. The best pairs are those where two people are individuals who discover more about themselves because of their interactions with each other. Notice how I kept love triangles and werewolves out of that definition? I kept them out of the ten example couples that I share here, too.

Make Your Voice Heard

Rip the Page: Adventures in Creative Writing by Karen Benke

You are a writer. You may not know it, but you are. Everybody has stories. Unless you’ve been in a coma, you’ve been doing something. Even if you were in a coma, when you awaken, you have an incredible story to tell. I don’t recommend trying to fall into a coma for inspiration, though. There are a lot of methods that are far less traumatic.
