Every once in awhile I come across a young adult romance that has all the typical plots and conflicts of that genre but still manages to surprise me.  And by typical plots and conflicts I mean the hero and heroine with the unfortunate childhoods, and really poor communication skills.  I spend a good deal of time reading YA romances wanting […]
