Here are the best young adult books about bullying, ranked from best to worst by the Ranker community. Including Thirteen Reasons Why and Finding Audrey, this list features popular young adult novels that deal with bullying. Be sure to vote for the YA books you like the most, vote down any that you didn't like -- and please, add any that might be missing, but make sure they are about bullying.

Bullying has always been a common theme in YA books since many teens and young adults face bullies in their everyday lives. Sometimes, the bullies are at their high school, while other times the bullies can be family members at home. Regardless of where it happens, the effects of bullying can lead to depression, violence, and even suicide. 

Although young adult books are written for teenagers, the themes covered in these novels  relate to readers of all ages. While YA novels usually involve love, teen romance, and growing up, these books also deal with more serious issues like drug abuse, domestic abuse, and depression. Filled with humor, thrills, and drama, the young adult genre is constantly growing popular with teens.
