The Teens Are All Right: 2011's Top 5 YA Novels : NPR | Readers Advisory For Secondary Schools | Scoop.it
"Once known for its problem novels and teen melodrama, young adult fiction has developed into one of the most complex and extensive genres in literature. 2011 brought us a wealth of new reads that continue to twist traditional formulas and take risks that are, by and large, paying off with wholly unique reading experiences.
