Thank you for your Book Match request for I Can’t Tell You by Hilary Frank. As I don’t know your age or why you liked the book (other than the genre you selected as Romance) the books I am suggesting are based on the fact that I Can’t Tell You is a high school level book and an unconventional romance. Therefore, I chose books that have romance elements in them, but are also have other conflicts with friends, family, school, etc, since I Can’t Tell You also contains those themes. Here are some other books I hope you will like.

Sabriel by Garth Nix.

Here are some suggestions to try…

The Shadow Thieves by Anne Ursu is part of a series (The Chronus Chronicles) so you may be interested in book 2, The Siren Song, if you haven’t already read it. Since you mentioned liking historical fiction and since The Shadow Thieves (and Percy Jackson) have mythology, I’ve included some books below that have both of these and also a couple with a little fantasy/magic. Here are some other books that I hope you will like:

It depends on what elements of sociology and psychology and what ages/grades you are interested in. However, here are some that you
might find useful for teens of various ages (both Giles and Hautman tend to write psychological fiction for teens). I hope these help--


Invisible by Pete Hautman (mental illness).

Doug and Andy are unlikely best friends--one a loner obsessed by his model trains, the other a popular student involved in football and

theater--who grew up together and share a bond that nothing can sever.

In 1906, sixteen-year-old Mattie, determined to attend college and be a writer against the wishes of her father and fiance, takes a job at a summer inn where she discovers the truth about the death of a guest. Based on a true story.


A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray.

 Here are some other titles that you might consider. There are two more titles in that series.
