Seventeen by Janis Ian

This song touches everyone who listens to it in some personal way. It's perfect for those of us who write Young Adult. I did a search for it while creating a young adult character and after listening to it then humming it for two days, I decided to share it with you.

  7. I'd never heard it before either, but I can see how it's perfect for writing YA protagonists. She's got a lovely voice, and I love the brief intro she gave to the song!
