Also, I’m going to ask for a favor. I am looking for the titles of young adult novels that either (1) are set or partially set on another planet, (2) involve dreaming as a central theme, or (3) are contemporary novels with light fantasy elements of story lines mixed in. Let me know if anything comes to mind. Thank you in advance.

Finnikin of the Rock has a dreaming element to it. It’s not necessarily the CENTRAL theme, but one of the characters can “walk the sleep” of other people.
Thanks, I will look this one up!
The first two books of C.S. Lewis’s space trilogy happen on Mars and Venus. They’re not YA, but they’re AMAZING.
I forgot about the silent planet. I haven’t read the second book, but I enjoyed the first one.
You’re right. That was a great proposal!
I also loved Fangirl.
I think it was so sweet how much work the whole family put into the proposal.
