There’s definitely magic in the air this month thanks to these YA books arriving this August. While the fantasy and YA genres often intersect, this month is absolutely overflowing with tales of witches, ghosts, and young people discovering their power. Not into fantasy? That’s okay, because there’s also an incredible novel about a trans teen standing up for his rights, a story about a young woman whose summer road trip doubles as a journey toward self-discovery, and a novel about a very relatable freshman college experience. No matter what kind of mood you’re in, this month’s selection of must-read YA books is sure to have a title that will speak to you.
