Amazon is hoping to involve young and old YA-loving readers alike in a new book club.

According to the Amazon website, the idea for a YA book club came about “in the midst of one of [the editorial group]’s discussions about the latest must-read YA.”

A new title will be selected each month, according to Amazon, and readers can submit questions for the author of the work.

The first title selected will be for both May and June and is the book “I’ll Give You the Sun” by Jandy Nelson. “This dual narrative exploring love, family, and identity through the lives of twins Noah and Jude stole our hearts and has been a book we can't seem to stop talking about,” Amazon staff wrote. 

Questions can be e-mailed to a special Amazon address for the book club or posted on the Goodreads page for the club by May 30. The website Goodreads became affiliated with Amazon in 2013.
