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!

Let’s Talk About Cheating in YA Books

It takes two people to cheat. That seems pretty obvious, yet it seems that the girl always takes the blame. Whether the girl actually takes part in the cheating or is “blamed” for “forcing” her boyfriend to cheat, she tends to take the brunt of the criticism. 

We went through our shelves to find how many books that we’ve read that included cheating as a trope in love triangles and analyzed how the author portrayed the characters. 

Do you have any more examples of cheating in YA? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

We loved Ash in Killing November and Hunting November. He’s sweet, a total badass and always there for November. The two don’t have the easiest time since someone is always out to get them, but they protect each other no matter what. We loved Ash’s quick wit and ability to read people. He’s the perfect YA book boyfriend for a thriller.
