We’ve become addicted to all things Grace & Fury by Tracy Banghart. Fierce females fighting for survival in two vastly different situations, with loads of opportunity for rebellion - what’s not to love?
One of our favourite things about this book is the sibling relationships. Serina and Nomi (and to a less explored extent also their brother, Renzo) have a powerful connection. They might get frustrated and jealous of each other, but when they were torn apart, the only thing they wanted was to make it back to each other. Every move and every thought is focused on finding and saving each other.
In honour of Serina and Nomi, we thought we would take a look at some of our other favourite YA siblings.
Scarlet & Tella – Caraval by Stephanie Garber
Nothing says sisterly love like trying as hard as you can to protect your sister from your abusive father – even if it means getting hurt in the end. Escaping together is their top priority, and if you get pulled into a magical adventure and have to solve a riddle on the way, even better!
Mare, Gisa, Shade, Bree & Tramy – Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

The Barrow family are a complex crew, without much hope for safety in the world of Reds and Silvers, until Mare makes it her mission to get them out of the war. With that many siblings running around, you would always know there is someone there to watch your back.
Cath & Wren - Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
The ultimate sibling duo because there are identical twins! Even though they drift apart as they attend college they still find a way back to each other because they will always be best friends first and siblings second.
Bellamy & Octavia – The 100 by Kass Morgan
Can you really pass up these two for sibling love? Bellamy fake attacks the government just so he can be sent to a possibly poisoned Earth with his illegal sister. There was no way he was being left in space to go on living without her!
Hazel & Ben – Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
Twins Hazel and Ben have always shared milestones and dreams together – including the dream of waking the sleeping faerie prince living in their forest. Added bonus for these two is being able to hold their own in Holly Black’s world of dark faerie tales, very impressive!
Lara Jean, Kitty & Margo – To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
From crushes on a sister’s boyfriend to perfecting the perfect biscuit recipe, the Covey girls have a way of making families feel super human, very cosy and incredibly cute. They’re a family you want to join!
Starr, Seven & Sekani – The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
This beautiful family were a must-have on our list! Seven is the best possible older brother to Starr. The family dynamics (especially adorable Sekani) made it feel all the more real!
Alanna & Thom – Song of the Lioness by Tamora Pierce
How many siblings volunteer to spend 8 years as a boy so their twin won’t have to become a knight? Ok, so Alanna wanted to become a knight herself, but that’s totally not the point!
Katniss & Primrose - The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Speaking of volunteering, even though we love Alanna, Katniss is definitely the winner of the sacrificing yourself for a sibling. Hard not to fall for a girl who would give up everything so her sister can survive.
Edward & Alice - Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Our favourite part about this duo is their epic silent conversations – when one can read minds and the other can see the future, there’s no need to use voices! But that’s not all, Alice was the first to jump on board with Edward and Bella as a couple, and she fought hard to help them stay together.
