The Best YA Author Dedication Pages

1. “To the readers who look up to the stars and wish” - Sarah J. Maas (A Court of Frost and Starlight)

2. “To the girl who reads by flashlight, who sees dragons in the clouds, who feels most alive in worlds that never were, who knows magic is real, who dreams. This is for you.” - Meagan Spooner (Hunter)

3. “For everyone who knows there was enough room for Leonardo DiCaprio on that door. And for England. We’re really sorry for what we’re about to do to your history.” - Cynthia Hand (My Lady Jane)

4. “To my mom, Belzie. I would have made a terrible doctor, Mom. People would have died.” - Ben Philippe (Field Guide to the North American Teenager)

5. “To the tall girls who wish they were dainty. To the short girls who wish they were elegant. To the girls who’ve always been too much. To the girls who are never brought. To those who persist. This is for you.” - Meagan Spooner (Sherwood)

6. “Work like a captain, play like a pirate.” - Christina Lauren (The Unhoneymooners)

7. “For the girl who’s been told to quiet down, calm down, sit down or just leave it to the men- this is for you.” - Mary Weber (To Best the Boys)

8. “What did the great heroes do when the sun fell from the sky? They leapt onto those wild flames and learned how to fly.” - Nicki Pau Preto (Crown of Feathers)

9. “Love is for children, said the girl. Death is for fools, said the shadow. Darkness is my destiny, said the boy. Allegiance is my undoing, said the eagle. Suffering is our fate, said the beauty. And they were all horribly wrong.” - Hafsah Faizal (We Hunt the Flame)

10. “Love seeketh not itself to please, nor for itself hath any care, but for another gives its ease, and builds a heaven in Hell’s despair.” It won’t always be easy, but it will always be worth it. - Sara B. Larson (Sisters of Shadow and Light)

P.S. The winner is Meagan Spooner, naturally.
