In Suzanne Young’s new contemporary novel, All In Pieces, Savannah Sutton would do anything for her little brother Evan, despite dealing with her own issues with anger. “Anything” includes sticking a pencil in her ex-boyfriend’s hand because he mocked Evan for being disabled. Despite the method, it’s hard NOT to root for someone that wouldn’t hesitate to go to bat for their sibling in such a way and it made me think about other supportive siblings in our favorite YA novels. Here are my top five!
Eager to dig into All In Pieces immediately? Check out our extended excerpt! If you want even more, check out our exclusive Q&A with Suzanne Young on her inspiration and why this was a story she needed to tell.
Katniss and Prim
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Katniss essentially sacrificed her life to keep Prim out of The Hunger Games which in turn spawned a full-blown revolution. If that’s not sisterly love, I don’t know what is!
Jude and Noah
I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson
(There is no movie or television adaptation of this novel as of yet but luckily there was so much beautiful fanart of these two to choose from! Original here.)
These twins are incredibly close, inseparable even, until they aren’t. That’s when they’ll have to find their way back to each other.
The Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling
Everyone’s seven favorite red headed siblings who, despite having seven different (and sometimes clashing) personalities, always have each other’s backs!
Alec and Isabelle Lightwood
The Shadowhunters Series by Cassandra Clare
Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield
Sweet Valley High by Francine Pascal
(Talk about a #TBT, amiright?)
Arguably the most aspirational siblings in teen lit – and we all knew which twin we’d be!
