You might like Hollowland by Amanda Hocking. I don't remember the ages of the main characters, but I am pretty sure they are close to your requirement. I'll have to go through my list because there are probably others in there somewhere!
I was going to suggest that one too, love it.MichelleB675 said:Penryn and the End of Days series by Susan Ee... Angelfall, World After and End of Days.
I think the short answer is that most post-apocalyptic novels are also likely to be dystopian, at least if we get to see the new society that rises from the ashes of the apocalyptic event, whereas dystopian novels may be set in a world that has come about gradually without an apocalyptic event ever having occurred.Atunah said:But I have to be honest, I have no clue about the difference between distopian and post apocalyptic.
Thanks for that. As I read it, I thought I had a better handle on the differences, but afterwards, I am just as confused.-alex- said:Thanks, I will look those up. Please keep the reccs coming!
Atunah, here is a link to a popular YA author, who I think explains your question well (and one of the first results, I found on google, lol). http://juliekagawa.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/dystopian-vs-post-apocalyptic.html
