Five YA titles for readers burnt out on love

Sona Charaipotra is a New York City-based writer and editor with more than a decade’s worth of experience in print and online media. For the BN Teen Blog she tagged five YA books to read when you're burnt out on love, including:
Endangered, by Lamar Giles

Quiet and forgettable, Lauren “Panda” Daniels is great at keeping secrets—and at spilling them, as the girl behind Gray Scales, an anonymous photo blog that exposes the dirty deeds of teens and teachers at her school. She’s managed to stay under the radar so far, but when she reveals the unsavory relationship between a teacher and student, someone catches her in the act and decides to beat her at her own game, blackmailing her with a cutthroat game of truth or dare that escalates to dangerous levels. This page-turner is fast-paced, complex, and compelling, with nary a distracting kissing scene in sight.
