11 Amazing YA Books That’ll Make You Cry — Just Like The Fault in Our Stars Did
We all remember what it was like when we read THAT part in The Fault in Our Stars — you know which part I’m talking about. You know a book is a good when it’s been days and you still can’t stop crying over it. We don’t know why, but we just love depressing, heartbreaking stories. Maybe it’s because you need to escape into another world and focus on someone else’s problems. Maybe it’s because sometimes you just need a good long cry.
Next time you’re craving a tearjerker, you don’t need to pick up The Fault in Our Stars for the hundredth time — because, lucky for us, there are TONS of other YA books out there that will give you just as many feels. You might want to break out the tissues, because here are some books that will make you cry just as much as TFiOS did:
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
Eleanor & Park is equal parts adorable and depressing. The relationship between the two title characters is just too cute. Exhibit A: “She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn't supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something,” Park says about Eleanor. I know, right?
But the tears are just around the corner, especially in the characters’ home lives. The ending is particularly sad, and will leave you BEGGING for a sequel.Photo: goodreads.com
