      11 YA Books With Happy Endings to Read on the Beach This Summer By Molly Horan UTC Recent young adult blockbusters have been a tad depressing, to say the least.   You weren’t always happy with the endings.

If you got published, your shit may not have been the greatest story out there, but there weren’t going to be typos on every page. Horror was king in the 80s.
