I know it has a lot going on besides the romance, but what about The Fault in Our Stars?

I loved Graffiti Moon -- it's hilarious and I fell in love with all of the characters. One night was not enough time to spend with them. Plus, it name-drops tons of artists, so I recommend reading in front of your computer so you can look up all the awesome artwork while you read (especially the glass artist Lucy mentions -- the colors of his work is incredible and I had no idea that sort of thing could be done with glass).

I'll second The Sky is Everywhere (it had quite a few Is it hot in here? moments), but I'll admit that it was difficult for me to read it, because I just knew that a story of a girl juggling two boys at once was pretty much guaranteed to result in some embarrassing situations for her and I just can't handle that. I'm pretty sure at one point I yelled at the main character and threw the book because I was so embarrassed for her/mad at her for doing something stupid, but I eventually picked it up again and was able to enjoy the rest of the book.
