This isn't the same list of read-alikes for fans of Ellen Hopkins, or for those into the goth scene (which doesn't really exist in our small town). It's more for teens (and it's usually girls) who like John Green and Lurlene McDaniel (there is a bigger cross-section of this group than you would think). They can just go read Nicholas Sparks' entire output as well of course.
- John Green
- Lurlene McDaniel
- Simone Elkeles (Perfect Chemistry and Leaving Paradise)
- Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
- Before I die by Jenny Downham
- If I stay by Gayle Forman
