On my own blog, The Perpetual Page-Turner, I had a "YA's Got Talent" list full of talented characters in YA. I have a couple on here from that list but more! I am always so jealous of people who are super talented because I just have never been really GOOD at anything unless you count binge eating cookies, world class procrastinating or marathoning shows as a special talent?
1. Mia/Adam // If I Stay & Where She Went by Gayle Forman: Mia is an incredible talented musician as is Adam! These books are favorites and the movie is coming out soon sooo you should probably just get to this if you haven't!
2. Carmen // Virtuosity by Jessica Martinez: Carmen is an incredibly competitive violinist...which a very competitive mother too! Also this is a great + underrated book!
3. Lucy // The Lucy Variations by Sara Zarr: A whole family of talented pianists but the MC has completely quit and learns to love music again on her own terms.
4. Hannah // Bunheads by Sophie Flack: The world of competitive ballet! Such a good book and also underrated. Written by an ex professional ballerina.
5. Zoe & Olivia // Maybe One Day by Melissa Kantor: Another dancer! Also, very good friendship story!
6. Elise // This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales: I know teenage DJ might sound a little lame but I PROMISE YOU. This was one of my FAVORITE reads of last year!
7. Cath // Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: Cath is a really talented writer of fan fiction (and just in general) and she's pretty internet famous!
8. All the characters // Take A Bow by Elizabeth Eulberg: It's set in a performing arts high school and has a couple different POVs who are all talented!
9. Lola // Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins: Fashion designer!
10. Matt Finch & Dee // Open Road Summer by Emery Lord: FAMOUS SINGERS. Matt Finch forever! And Lilah = a Taylor Swift-esque singer but when she was still country.
