Fifteen contemporary YAs that make fabulous valentines

One title on Dahlia Adler's list of fifteen contemporary YA books that make fabulous valentines, as shared on the B & N Teen Blog:
Girl Against the Universe, by Paula Stokes

Maguire is straight-up bad luck; there’s no other way to explain why terrible things happen around her, hurting and even killing people who dare get too close. So to be safe, Maguire shelters herself from the outside world as much as humanly possible. But when she finds a reason to force herself to overcome her fears, the cute guy she meets in her therapist’s office is only too happy to help, especially when they learn both of their solutions revolve around tennis. (Insert joke about “love-love” here.) Though this adorably bittersweet love story of personal growth won’t be released by this V-Day, you can pick up her last one, The Art of Lainey, while you impatiently wait.
