Stacy

The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau Banks, by E. Lockhart. Hands down one of the best YA novels of the year. Frankie is smart, articulate and in many ways still typical. Every single teen who we have given this book to LOVES IT. So there you go...quality and appeal.

I would like to highly recommend (nominate)Classical Comics Macbeth Original text.
The artwork is simply fantastic and the whole approach allows people who previously have not read Shakespeare to really get to grips with it in a creative and enjoyable way. My sister (teacher of English to foreign students aged 16 -18)is considering using the book too!
The book which uses the play with its full script is fab for both the traditionalist and the newcomer to Shakespeare!
All round winner!

Libby

John Green's Paper Towns--I think it's out by now, isn't it?

Kate

I nominate Sweethearts by Sara Zarr - a book that I loved and one that our older middle school girls and high school kids are keeping very busy in the library (five copies - all out right now!).

Can I recommend Jane Eyre please? This is one of the Graphic versions by classicalcomics. I'm having to break up 'arguments' amongst my year 8 girls over my two precious review copies of this one.Not sure where this should go, looks like art rather than a comic to me - but I'm probably out of touch!!
Thank you
Ali

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

I nominate The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (Scholastic, Oct 2008). This book was so well written, it gripped me and didn't let me go. Powerful and emotional, I loved it so much!

Maddy

I'd like to nominate "Mousetraps" by Pat Schmatz in the YA-fiction category

Girl, HERO, by Carrie Jones. I wish I could have heard John Wayne's (aka the author's) voice whispering in my ear when I was younger.

Mona Vensky

Stephanie

The Dreadful Revenge of Ernest Gallen by James Lincoln Collier

Colleen

"Season of Ice" by Diane Les Becquets. One of the best depictions of middle class in YA lit I've read this year - plus a whole lot more. It's a solid title that doesn't involve a lot of overwrought moments but should appeal to a wide range of kids who face the same questions in their own lives. (Which is the point, I think.)

I just made the cut off (release date of Jan 8, 2008).

Nancy

ALIVE AND WELL IN PRAGUE, NEW YORK by Daphne Grab

Eva Mitnick

Tender Morsels by Margo Lanagan!!

Matvick

Angel by Cliff McNish!
This page-turner connects the everyday concerns of teenagers with fantasy, suspense, and the mystery of angels.

Laura

I second Mousetraps by Pat Schmatz!

Jessica Burkhart

HOW TO HOOK A HOTTIE by Tina Ferraro.

Toreyy

Patron Saint of Butterflies by Cecilia Galante

Great YA book on an in the news topic!

Robin

In case the triple nomination farther up eliminates this title, I'd say SHIFT, by Jennifer Bradbury.

P.S. If it doesn't eliminate it, then I'd say I HEART YOU, YOU HAUNT ME, by Lisa Schroeder.

Philip Pileggi

Kindly cast my vote for Anne Spollen's Shape of Water as well. Thank you.

KT Horning

"The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing: Traitor to the Nation, Volume 2: Kingdom on the Waves" by M.T. Anderson is the most amazing work of YA fiction I have read in ages. I found myself weeping because the British lost the Revolutionary War.

amsamph

I nominate Seaborn by Craig Moodie. This powerful story is a real page-turner. Each character has an authentic voice, and the descriptions are poetic. A great high-seas coming-of-age story

Liv

13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Jill

Madapple by Christina Meldrum

Tez Miller

For Young Adult Fiction, I'd like to nominate Rachel Cohn's You Know Where to Find Me.

TROUBLE by Gary D. Schmidt

I would like to recommend a "Dandelions of Uganda" by Shenaaz Nanji. It is a crime not to read this captivating, poignant historical fiction novel.
