13 of Our Favorite Brooding YA Heroes

We recently discovered a Twitter account that combines two of our favorite things: brooding YA heroes and poking fun at brooding YA heroes. You know the type — the male lead in most young adult novels who is hot and smoldering and (sometimes) supernatural…yet wholly unrealistic. Brooding YA Heroes parodies this jaw-clenching, hair-tousling, secret-keeping archetype to hilarious effect. In honor of these fantastic tweets, we’ve highlighted some of our favorites.
