What Young Adult book with a Historical setting do you adore?
I scrolled my Goodreads and realized I am scant on these, at least ones without any magic or paranormal elements. However I did find Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys. Set in 1950’s New Orleans this book is swimming in setting. It has been ages since I read it so I am fuzzy on the details now, but I do remember the writing being incredibly strong.
I also had a good giggle that Dangerous Angels by Francesca Lia Block might even be considered historical fiction at this point. I read it in middles school (around 2002-2004) and it was already a fairly old book by then. I can’t recall the exact setting but I want to say they’re set in the 90’s which to today’s teens may as well be historical!
