Fifty YA novels for readers at any age

At B&N Reads Tara Sonin tagged fifty YA novels adults will love, too, including:
Up To This Pointe, by Jennifer Lia Longo

Harper Scott’s ancestor died trying to get to the South Pole, so she has always tried to do the opposite: stick to a plan, to what she’s good at, and never take unnecessary risks. But when Harper’s plan goes up in flames, she finds herself headed exactly where she never thought she’d go—to Antarctica, to wait out a broken heart in their six-month winter. One of the most honest, beautiful, and crushing depictions of friendship you will ever read.
