Giving books titles is really hard. We can’t all have short punchy ones like “Power” and “Blood”, I suppose, so it makes sense that some titles get…lengthy. Super lengthy. Some titles end up as entire sentences, honestly. And while it takes us half an hour to recall and spit out the book’s title, at least we know it’s original and unique!
So here is a list of YA books with seriously incredibly ridiculously long titles.
This is about an Autistic boy who discovers his neighbours dog murdered and embarks on a mission to find out who. And why. It’s an excellent story, honestly, and gives you a great inside look at what it’s like to live with Autism.
This is about a school for girl spies, masquerading as just an average boarding school — because OF COURSE. It features Cammie and the calamities she gets into. Because hey it’s hard falling in love for the first time when your boyfriend can’t know anything about you.
Yes you will need about half an hour to say this title, but at least it’s beautiful?! I haven’t read this one yet, but it apparently features a girl named September and her journey through fairy land. Also there are keys and dragons, so what more could you want really?
This story is told entirely in lists. Yes. LISTS. It might be 600+ pages, but it actually goes by very fast because of the list-factor. It’s about Darren’s painful life, where his parents are divorced, he doesn’t have a girlfriend, he doesn’t have a life basically, and growing up is just all round difficult.
This is the kind of book where you just want to devour the beautiful lyrical writing. It’s incredible! It’s a coming-of-age story about Ari, a Mexican boy, who’s trying to figure out who he is and what he wants in life and if he’s in love with his best friend, Dante.
This is a story of 4 teenagers in the 1970s and what it was like to grow up in Alaska. The writing is absolutely gorgeous and sensory, so you really feel like you’re in the story. There are runaways, a teenage pregnancy, a ballerina trapped in the fishing life, and an abused girl who just won a lot of money. There is also delicious pie, so clearly this book is a winner.
This is a story about the superhero kids that save the world…no wait, it’s actually about the OTHER kids who no one talks about while those superhero kids are saving the world. It’s such a unique story! It features Mikey (who has an anxiety disorder) and his coming-of-age story while the world is being smashed about by those powerful kids. And the writing is just phenomenal. Highly recommend!
