Books dealing with "Teen Issues"

As many of you know, I'm a high school librarian.  One of the most repeated phrases I hear from my students is..."I want to read a book that deals with struggling teens...what do you recommend?"

While some teens want an epic fantasy adventure, others just want a real life STORY.  One they can relate to.  Characters that could be them...or their friend/s.

So...I have made it a TOP PRIORITY to add such books to our collection.  Sure, we have the obvious popular choices (Thirteen Reasons Why, Perks of Being a Wallflower, Looking for Alaska, etc).  And we have many "classics" on such topics.  I'm looking for MORE.  I want them all :)

There are numerous helpful resources out there...lists of books dealing with teen issues such as: eating disorders, body image, sexual abuse & rape, teen pregnancy, LGBTQ teens, bullying, suicide and death.

What have you read that fits this description?  What would you recommend?
