Welcome to the Blockbuster-Free Summer Reading Exchange (BFSRE)!
YARN (The Young Adult Review Network) will be hosting a summer long conversation about blockbuster-free YA novels - books that deserve far more recognition than they get. Find out all the details below and join in on the exchange this summer!

But our staff is just here to get the ball rolling.  Really, we want YOU, Readers, to tell us what lesser-known YA YOU are reading, or what you have loved, and why, using the Comments section on the page.  Please consult the current NYT Bestsellers list to make sure your suggestion isn’t on it, and try to stay away from classics like Judy Blume or S.E. Hinton, too, since obviously those are perennial blockbusters in their own way.  Also, if you are a writer, please don’t just post about your own book–we’d love to hear your recommendations about other books, and if you happen to add the url to your own book in your signature, we promise not to delete it 
Remember, part of the point here is to bring attention to writers and books that haven’t gotten enough of it.  We hope, also, that a dialogue will start on the page about these books, and why we love them, so please respond to others’ posts.
