Underrated Grittier YA Reads

I’m back here to bring you another edition of underrated grittier reads. Last week I focused more on fluffier contemporaries. But today I’m focusing on grittier ones, this may be because they’re fantasy, but also they could just be dealing with harder subject matters.

  1. I haven’t read any of these! 🙁 I tried Children of Blood and Bone, but had to DNF. I’m hoping to get to Every Heart a Doorway soon! I’ll have to check the rest of these out! Great list!
