YA squads you DEFINITELY want to join
We all love to read about a ragtag group of friends on an adventure, so we’re sharing 18 YA squads you’ll DEFINITELY want to join!
A Sky Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir
It’s hard to beat this crew. Between Elias’s strength, Helene’s grit, and Laia’s heart, this is the YA dream team we all deserve.
The Shadow War by Lindsay Smith
WHAT AN EPIC SQUAD. As they race against time, war, and enemies from both this world and another, Liam, Daniel, Rebeka, Phillip, and Simone know that all they can count on is their own determination and will to survive.
Warcross by Marie Lu
Trust us: you need the Phoenix Riders in your life. It’s just a fact.
Dark and Shallow Lies by Ginny Myers Sain
The Summer Children may be one of our favorite YA squads of 2021!
Stormbreak by Natalie C. Parker
Okay, hear us out…epic squad, but ON A SHIP. This kickass crew belongs to the Seafire Trilogy, and we suggest you get to reading right away.
You’re So Dead by Ash Parsons
Three best friends stuck on an island for an influencer festival gone (very) wrong while a serial killer is on the loose? What could possibly go wrong?!
The Beautiful by Renée Ahdieh
Honestly, all we want in life is to join The Court of Lions and hang out with all the magical creatures of the underworld.
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
The original beloved YA squad (that made you sob). Stay gold, Ponyboy.
That Was Then, This Is Now by S.E. Hinton
And if you loved The Outsiders, make sure you pick up its companion novel!
Super Fake Love Song by David Yoon
This is the nerdy, wholesome friend group you always wished you had. PLUS it’s super funny.
They Wish They Were Us by Jessica Goodman
We LOVE the Players…but watch your back and be careful. This is not the–uh–friendliest group to hang around.
Flyy Girls #4 – Tobyn: The It Girl by Ashley Woodfolk
The series finale is coming, so if you haven’t yet, it’s definitely time to join the Flyy Girls and catch up before #4 hits shelves this August!
The Kinder Poison by Natalie Mae
Love an epic YA squad? How about that x3 but it’s a deadly competition between three royal heirs that gets INTENSE.
The Girls I’ve Been by Tess Sharpe
Epic squad + BANK HEIST. We loved every page of this thriller, and can’t wait to see it on screen when Netflix adapts it with Millie Bobby Brown!
The Desolations of Devil’s Acre by Ransom Riggs
If you’re looking for the perfect series to get completely lost in, it’s time to introduce you to the peculiars, one of our all time favorite YA squads!
Perfectly Parvin by Olivia Abtahi
Parvin has probably the best friends in the whole world. This is the 10/10 high school friend group EVERYONE needs.
Squads to look forward to meeting…
League of Liars by Astrid Scholte – Feb 22, 2022
We LOVE a heist squad!
Kiss & Tell by Adib Khorram – March 22, 2022
BOY BAND + ROMANCE + DRAMA. We love.
