The top 25 young adult novels of 2014

Caitlin White rounded up her top 25 young adult novels of 2014 for Bustle. One title on the list:
Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern (HarperTeen)

Too often novels about people with disabilities or disease become novels about those conditions and not about people. Cammie McGovern doesn’t fall into this trap in Say What You Will. In her story about a 17-year-old woman with cerebral palsy and a teenage boy with crippling OCD, she manages to be honest and not condescending. This way, instead of becoming about the “other,” this disease, her story becomes about the resilience of human character and the heartrending ache of first love amid obstacles of any kind.
Read about the other books on the list.

Writers Read: Cammie McGovern (July 2014).
