Few things fill a young (or post quarter-life) heart more than the men she meets in the “young adult” books she reads. From Anne of Green Gables to (gulp) Twilight, each page of these books is filled with love, heroism and… kissing. A lot of highly-described, will-they-or-won’t-they kissing. Yes, yes, they support multidimensional heroines and often promote female empowerment and self-discovery, but more importantly, they often take off their shirts. And what lies under those shirts? Pure, post-pubescent hotness.

I present to you The 10 Hottest Men in Young Adult Fiction.
