Young Adult books are filled with turmoil and angst. Secrets are a big part of teenage life. I’ve read some great books that share a theme – the characters all have something to hide. In some instances, the secret is something they wish they could scream from the top of the rooftops, but in others they just want everything to go away so they can lead a normal life.
