The Light in the Dark YA Bundle, curated by Allyson Longueira: I love young adult fiction. And I'm not the only far-from-young adult who does. So, when I had the opportunity to curate another StoryBundle, I knew YA was the way to go.
Each book in this bundle sparks a light in the dark. Sometimes, that light comes from within. Sometimes, the characters must fight back the darkness to find it. And their stories demonstrate the incredible diversity of young adult fiction, from lighthearted and inspirational to dark and gritty.
These eleven fantastically versatile authors provided thirteen books that offer magic, triumph, humor, daring, hardship, and resilience. Sometimes, all in one.

Tiffany Tumbles by Kristine Grayson
"This is a completely new aspect of Greek Mythology. It's light hearted and fast moving and quite amusing. … The author cleverly weaves the myths, the unhappiness and fitting into a normal teenage life with great expertise."– Long and Short Reviews
Sparks by Fiction River
"If you haven't checked out Fiction River yet, you should. There's something for everyone."– Keith West, Adventures Fantastic
The Gamers Trilogy - Complete Box Set by Thomas K. Carpenter
"A cross between the Uglies Trilogy and the Hunger Games"– Trisha Reviews
Burning Bright by Melissa McShane
"This was one of those books that I knew from the beginning that it was just my thing. Intrepid heroine set for adventure, magic, war on the high seas, dashing Navy Captain, pirates, shipboard adventure, danger, and maybe love when she least expects it? This was history and fantasy blended together at its best."– Delighted Reader reviews
Mytro by John Biggs
"A compelling page-turner that successfully creates a detailed and intricate world in which both new readers and adults can easily get lost."– Amazon Review
Thunderbird by Deb Logan
"Justin and Janine end up making part of their lengthy journey through the spirit world. As an adult, I've read a lot of stuff about traveling through various spirit worlds that just leaves me bored, but the adult side of me found the spirit world described here just as interesting as my kid brain did."– Amazon Review
Offside by David H. Hendrickson
"This coming-of-age tale of a young country boy who must adapt to a new life in the city is a perfect choice for high school students of all reading abilities. The quick pace of the story keeps the reader springing after "Rabbit" Labelle as he encounters all kinds of people in his new environment. Especially meaningful to us as a school are the book's themes of bullying, alienation, friendship, and family."– Anastasia Mower, ELA Chair, Lynn English High School
Vagabonds by Darcy Pattison
"Before WATERSHIP DOWN came out, some people might have scoffed at the idea of heroic rabbits. Those same people might raise their eyebrows at the idea of armadillos on a quest, but it didn't take long for me to become invested in Galen's story as he did his best to raise his four younger sisters before giving into his compulsion to trek. Galen actually has a chance to break the age-old curse that has forced his ancestors north through Mexico and across the Rio Grand when he sets off with his old friend Corrie and an ambitious stranger named Victor."– Kristin Nitz, author
Tales of Feyland & Faerie by Anthea Sharp
"Fae Horse: A Faerie Tale" is like a Godiva chocolate after an unremarkable meal. Dark and lyrical, it is everything a dark fae tale should be. The writing is expert. The author deftly weaves strands of faerie sorcery around the reader until escape is impossible. Its bewitching enchantment will leave you a captive of its spell. I say surrender and savor the lusciousness."– Miranda on Amazon.com

Second, and most importantly, we don't believe we should be treating our customers as criminals. So go ahead and put these on your tablets, Kindles and smartphones, but if a friend wants to read the bundle, please have them buy one for themselves. With pay-what-you-want, we believe there's a price for everyone. Or better yet, buy one for them as a gift. Help support indie authors!
Support nonprofits. Best of all, you can also give a portion of the proceeds from each bundle to charity. To learn more about these charities and those they help, click the "Learn More" link next the charities when you purchase.
