This is technically a crossover Adult/YA but it works. The first two are out and are SO good. You can buy both of them now, and preorder book 3.
Who would like it? Anyone who likes dystopian and science fiction.

CARRY ON by Rainbow Rowell
Who would like it? Harry Potter fans!
For non science fiction/fantasy fans:

Who would like it? Anyone who wants a YA book about more than just romantic relationships. Sarah Dessen gets people
EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING by Nicola Yoon
Who would like it? Anyone looking for a good contemporary romance that is a little different
