Ten top books with secrets

Cathy Cassidy wrote her first picture book for her little brother when she was eight or nine and has been writing stories ever since. Her latest book is Sweet Honey.

One of Cassidy's ten favorite books with a sneaky secret, as shared at the Guardian:
Delirium by Lauren Oliver

I'm not usually a fan of dystopian fiction, but this book I loved. Imagine a world where mankind's greatest sickness has been cured. People lied, killed and fought wars for love – but now teenagers are given the cure at eighteen and the world is a calmer, colder, less colourful place. So what happens when Lena is infected by the forbidden disease... and discovers the secrets and lies the Consortium have been telling the world for decades. A great read.
Read about another entry on the list.

Delirium is among Holly Bourne's top ten love stories with a twist and Torie Bosch's five top dark YA novels set in post-climate-change world.
