    I don’t want to be rude, but when i think of the Hunger Games, I don’t think of a love triangle. I think of a girl who takes her baby sisters place in what is usually a deadly competition, first. the love triangle was always last in my opinion. I am actually a little annoyed this is even on the list.

    If your looking for a story about a girl figuring out her sexuality, and growing attraction for the new girl at school, you should look up “Keeping You A Secret” by Julie Anne Peters. the excerpt on the back says ” With a steady boyfriend, the position of Student Council President, and a chance to go to an Ivy League college, high school life is just fine for Holland Jaeger. At least it seems to be. But when Cece Goddard comes to school, everything changes. Cece and Holland have undeniable feelings for each other, but how will others react to their developing relationship? This moving love story between two girls is a worthy successor to Nancy Garden’s classic young adult coming out novel, Annie on My Mind. With her characteristic humor and breezy style, Peters has captured the compelling emotions of young love.”

    If your looking for a two guys crushing on one girl series read the Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare who also wrote the Mortal Instruments series. Fantastic writer and it’s a happy/sad/perfect ending. And if you get to the third book, bring tissues and be prepared to cry, I don’t cry often but I was blotchy and tear-stained by the end of the trilogy.

    I love the boyfriend list! I’ve read the whole series and come back to it time and time again. It grabs you in; I really feel for the girl, her pain, hating her friends, and liking the guys. I love the side stories and footnotes, and long for experiences like that (except for the negative parts).

    Two other authors I love are Ellen Hopkins and David Levithan. I love his writing style, his use of language, and his tales of love.
