The holiday season is upon us! For some, this time of year is a magical opportunity to spend time with loved ones and make memories together. For others, the thought of spending time with family members is just slightly more appealing than oral surgery. YA books are rife with families that make most of us elated that the worst we have to deal with is Aunt Rita’s tendency to double dip in the French Onion jelly. As a firm believer that each unhappy family is unique, I have decided to put together a list of my favorite (i.e. worst) dysfunctional families in YA.
Did I miss any of your favorite (or most hated) dysfunctional families? Let us know in the comments below, and of course, don’t forget to check out some of the appropriately dysfunctional YA families in our December free reads!
