What are some books/authors that I should look into if I like John Green, etc?
I really love books by John Green, Sarah Dessen, and C.K. Kelly Martin. What other books or authors can you suggest I read?

I like all of those authors, too!
If you haven't read anything by Sara Zarr, you must do that. My favorite book of hers is Sweethearts, but all of them are good. Her attention to friendships and relationships is a lot like that in Martin's books. Fabulous writing, too.
For Sarah Dessen fans, I usually recommend Deb Caletti's books. Very similar subject matters and writing styles. You might like Susane Colasanti's books, too, but they are a little bit fluffier.
Anything by David Levithan is also a good bet (I suspect you've already read Will Grayson, Will Grayson, which he co-wrote with John Green). He gets better with every book. My favorite of his is Love Is The Higher Law.
A few others:
The Vast Fields of Ordinary -Nick Burd
Anna and the French Kiss - Stephanie Perkins
Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You - Peter Cameron
Before I Fall - Lauren Oliver
Mostly Good Girls - Leila SalesSource(s): being a YA book nerd
