The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
The same I can see about this book. The Perks have no perks but the anxiety and depression of Charlie. It is about teenage depression perpetuated by the childhood trauma, with the self-guilt.

This is another tragic young adult fiction. It is classic.
Stay Gold ! Ponyboy is a commonly known reference.

Read this book to remember the recklessness of teenage life.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
The fantastic fantasy everyone is talking about is worth talking about.
Only two books but have an entire universe, and cultivate characters that will become your favorite in the first read.
This fantastic duology is a great time-pass, and engulf the painful protagonists. Each character has its story, that will water your eyes.
All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
Another tear-jerker tells the story of a bipolar life.
If you enjoy a boy saving girl live, this is all you need. Dedicated to cliche, the book starts with the grief and ends with grief.
You know book is sad when thee book ends and you are numb to everything around you. Because what just happened is magically aching.
The Giver by Lowry
A marvelous dystopian novel by Lois Lowry deserves the spot on this list.
No robots, or political uprising, merely a boy doing what he believes is right. During quarantine, it is essential to introspect, and this book would show you how everything you know could be wrong.
To learn, you have to unlearn first.
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
Suicide. Is there any greater human tragedy than this?
Thirteen Reasons Why is telling of such a tragic event from a victim's point of view after her death. She left a tape for each of the reasons, telling them why she killed herself and how they be to blame.
You will learn the reason of a dead person. The book shows that what you think is small joke could be a reason for someone's death.
The Hunger Games by Collins
The widely acclaimed dystopian fiction that changed the publication Industry.
There are many trilogies following the same formula as the Hunger Games. All retelling of this excellent book.
The story is hugely political, hiding behind the thrill of the deathly games. Read it, and you will understand the politics around a lot.
In the end you will see the unfairness spread across the world, and how disgusting it is actually.
We Were Liars by Lockhart
Emily Lockhart has a writing talent. The books stand on the misery, jealousy, rudeness of character, and break the heart of the reader.
Too much goes on in this book. The Sinclair family is none less than any typical Game of Throne family but in the modern world.
Wealth is not everything, and Sinclair family learns it hard way.
Do you like reading sad books?
