When it comes to picking a college, the choice can be difficult. There are literally thousands of options in the United States and even more if you’re open to traveling to another country.
We created a list of the colleges chosen by characters from YA books. Some of these books are set in high school and others are set at college. Most of the colleges are in the United States, with a couple in the United Kingdom.
This blog post is all about the colleges chosen by characters from YA books!

1. A Stand Alone Book You Love
Annie Lucas’s life changes in the blink of an eye when her dad gets offered the pitching coach position for the Kansas City Royals. But it’s off-limits to fall for the hot rookie pitcher, Jason Brody, when your dad is his coach. Except, Brody’s always at the house and Annie can’t get him out of her head. Whatever Life Throws at You is perfect for fans of sports and romance. This is one of our favorite YA romances because of our love of baseball and the chemistry between Annie and Brody. It’s the perfect Valentine’s Day read.

1. Business/Marketing: Summer Constellations by Alisha Sevigny
The family business is hurting and Julie Ducharme doesn’t know what to do. The last thing she wants is for her mother to sell the camp ground lake property. Except, with her brother’s recent illness and her mom’s debt, it might be the only option. To make matters worse, her crush Dan returns for the summer with a new girlfriend.
One night while looking at stars on the dock, Julie runs into Nick Constantine, a cute guy playing guitar. Instant sparks fly between the two and for the first time, the summer looks hopeful. However, Nick’s dad is a developer who wants to turn the lake into a casino resort. Nick doesn’t want to be associated with his dad’s project and tries to help Julie keep the family business. Can she truly ever trust him?
Summer Constellations is really great for family relationships. Julie is very protective of her bother Caleb. Caleb and Nick developed a friendship that made the romance in the story even more genuine. While the romance makes you want to spend the summer at a lake with a hot guy, Julie’s first priority is her family. Julie enlists Nick and her family to come up with marketing ideas to boost the family business to prevent selling to the developers.

1. Anna and The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Anna Oliphant is forced to leave Atlanta and spend her senior year of high school at a boarding school, the School of America in Paris (SOAP). At first she hates the idea of leaving her mom and brother, her best friend, and her crush (and hopefully future boyfriend.)
Upon arriving at SOAP, she quickly joins a group of friends that helps her explore the City of Lights and get over her fear of living in a foreign country. Almost instantly, Anna develops feelings for a member of the friend group, the charismatic, gorgeous (and very taken) Étienne St. Clair. Their friendship is tested when the two discover if being more than friends is in their future.
