Basically I'm intrested in books about teens over coming issues some of my favorites are thirteen reasons why, speak, it's kind of a funny story. Any thing like that I would give a go thanks for the help!

Hey Megan By overcoming issues, do you mean coming of age novels?

I would recommend:

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky (This one is amazing!)
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson (Haven't read this but by the same author od Speak! It's also an "overcoming issues" book)
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith (*Gushes* Love this book, haha)
Paper Towns and Looking for Alaska by John Green
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
The Lovely Bones by Alice Seabold

and love as long as you live

I recommend a piece of cake by cupcake brown and the invisible girl by peter barham. while the invisible girl isn't about how she overcame her problems but how because of her so many others did. It's such a moving story about a girl who reached out for help and an absent father who rose to the challenge

Have you read any books by Jodi Picoult? Or Ellen Hopkins? You may enjoy some of those.
