The weather is starting to get bad, winter is coming, and that means that it’s almost my birthday. Every year I look forward to my birthday as a bright spot in the mid-November doldrums of fall. This made me think about other people who may look forward to November for reasons other than Thanksgiving. It just so happens that some of my favorite YA authors also celebrate their birthdays in November!
Check out a handful of my favorite YA books by these November-born YA authors who just might love dreary November as much as I do.

Happy birthday, November birthdays!
