Romantic Fiction, not of the Paranormal Variety

I know, I know...this is supposed to be a blog about paranormal things, but I have read some of the best realistic, romantic fiction for teens these past few weeks and they warrant some attention on the blog. It's almost impossible to write teen fiction, paranormal or not, and exclude romance because it's integral to nearly every teens life. High school is when you start to have crushes, the hormones are going bonkers and all this mixed in with normal everyday life leads to lots of teen angst, a perfect scenario for an exciting teen book! These four new titles are really the best of the best out right now, check them out!
