The sheer breadth of the YA genre never fails to astound us. As November 2021’s selection of must-read YA books illustrates, there’s no other genre quite as daring or varied as the world of YA. This month alone, there is a tale of high seas adventure, a queer romance set against the backdrop of early 20th century Norway, and a murderous twist on Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Whether you want to lose yourself in a rom-com or delve into an intricate fantasy world, there’s no shortage of incredible YA books waiting to sweep you away in November. (And just in case you need a few more suggestions, don’t forget to check out October’s must-read list, too.)
