Today I have a question for you - is "the man" in your manuscript?
It occurred to me that these four very popular YA titles have and a common element of battling "the man." (Is stick it to the man an American phrase? Just in case it is, "the man" refers to the head honcho. Usually it applies to the government, but it can also apply to powers on a corporate level. Like your boss would be considered "the man.")
In the Twilight saga, Bella must battle the Volturi - the monarchy within the vampire community.
In Matched, Cassia is resisting the overbearing government as it interferes with her grandfather's life, her mother's job, and even her love life.
In The River of Time Trilogy by Lisa T. Bergren, "the man" element is slightly different since Marcello, the hero of the novel, could technically be considered the man. But Gabi and Marcello consistently fight the opposing government.
And "the man" element is most prominent in The Hunger Games trilogy where Katniss is practically sent to her death in the beginning of the first book for the entertainment of the capital city. (I saw the movie trailer last time I was at the theater and I got all teary. Very excited for March!)
These are books that have made a splash, made an impression with readers. All have love triangles (though they're more prominently featured in the first two listed) and they all have an authority figure who the main character must battle. Readers like rooting for a character who can see beyond his/her problems and fight for something bigger. In your novel, is your main character fighting for something bigger than his or herself?
