Books!

What was the best teen book you read in the last year (or so)?

As part of Teen Read Week (Oct. 14-20), we're compiling a list of our favorite YA books from 2012 - or thereabouts.  We're not going to give your choice the ax because it was published in 2011.  Now, if your book came out in 2005...it's gonna see the chopping block.
