There are some books that are big, even huge, in terms of publicity - The Hunger Games, The Fault in Our Stars, Divergent, and so on.  Certainly these books are worthy of the attention, but there are many other books out there deserving the same.  Books in this latter group go largely unnoticed; these are "quiet" books.

Don't let the "quiet" part fool you.  These books are just as powerful as the "big" books, which is why you should learn more about them.

From Hold Me Closer Necromancer to The Story of Us, there's something for everyone in this list of "quiet" books chosen by a blogger at YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association).  Find your next great read today!
