Readings YA Books That Teach Empathy

I just couldn't ignore this list from Readings as I'd just recently found another list of books that teach empathy. Too much of a coincidence? They're quite different lists actually. But both intriguing.

Readings also have a list of Children's Books That Teach Empathy.

Thirteen Reasons Why - Jay Asher

Max - Sarah Cohen-Scali, Penny Hueston
The Bone Sparrow - Zana Fraillon
Becoming Kirrali Lewis - Jane Harrison
Everything Beautiful - Simmone Howell
Becoming Aurora - Elizabeth Kasmer

Beck - Mal Peet, Meg Rosoff
This One Summer - Jillian Tamaki, Mariko Tamaki
The Hate U Give - Angie Thomas
All I Ever Wanted - Vikki Wakefield
Trouble Tomorrow - Terry Whitebeach, Sarafino Wani Enadio

I'm always delighted to see Vicki Wakefield on any list - she's my fav YA author ATM :-)

I'm very annoyed at myself for not having read any Vikki Wakefield. I saw her speak at SWF a few years ago, and I really really want to read her- I have some in the house. I need to get around to it sooner rather than later, and of course a recommendation like that from you Brona adds considerable weight.
