Best Books for Teens 2008

Today our team of librarians did our annual book talk for the best and brightest teen books that we've read this year (this is our favorites session, not so much our critical acclaim session). Sadly, it being only November, not all of the best stuff has made it into our hands yet. So, as of today, these are my favorites:

Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson

Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway

The Fortunes of Indigo Skye by Deb Caletti

Graceling by Kristin Cashore

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Little Brother by Cory Doctorow

Diamond Willow by Helen Frost

by E. Lockhart

Trouble by Gary Schmidt
Artichoke's Heart by Suzanne Supplee

Hi Elisabeth. Audrey, Wait! is really funny. Other fun books with humor I read this year were Geek Magnet by Kieran Scott, Artichoke's Heart by Suzanne Supplee, and The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart.
