Best Books for Young Adults 2009

YALSA has the BBYA list up now. Here's the Top Ten:

Bowman, Robin. It's Complicated: The American Teenager.
Conner, Leslie. Waiting for Normal.
de la Pena, Matt. Mexican WhiteBoy.
Dowd, Siobhan. Bog Child.
Collins, Suzanne. The Hunger Games.
Fletcher, Christine. Ten Cents a Dance.
Monninger, Joseph. Baby.
Pratchett, Terry. Nation.
Tamaki, Mariko. Skim.
Voorhees, Coert. The Brothers Torres.

I'm happiest about Mexican Whiteboy and Hunger Games since I really liked both of those.

I have only read Hunger Games. I need to brush up on my YA reading. I did notice Mexican Whiteboy at my school library and briefly picked it up....does that count?

Your two favorites on the list are my favorites, too. Loved Hunger Games and can't wait for the sequel. And Mexican White Boy was incredible.
