YA Wednesday: February's Best Books



Amazon Book ReviewFebruary's best young adult titles jump from World War II tragedy to the horsemen of the apocalypse to a teen pop star gone rogue.  I recently wrote about our spotlight pick, Ruta Sepetys' Salt to the Sea, and also posted my Q&A with the author, so I won't gush on about it again, but suffice it to say Sepetys has written another brilliantly composed historical novel, this time tackling the greatest maritime disaster in history.

Below are a couple more of our February favorites. You can see all six of our best YA books of the month here:
