Every Day by
David Levithan, (2013 winner)
would you do if you woke up everyday in a totally different body with a
entirely different life? Different hair color, different ethnicity, different
weight—even a different gender. That’s exactly the life that A is living in
this book. Body hopping is difficult enough, but when A falls in love with a
girl named Rihannon, things get even more problematic.

Firegirl by Tony Abbott (2007
Through the eyes of
seventh grader Tom Bender, we learn about the new girl Jessica Feeney. Jessica
is regarded as a freak of nature after suffering intense burns all over her
body, but Tom is an outsider as well and learns that Jessica isn’t that
different after all. As a reader, you’ll discover that simple acts of kindness
are well worth it.
Pushing the Limits
by Katie McGarry (2013 winner)
In this book, you’ll get
not one, but two narrators. While they may not think they have much in common,
Echo and Noah both attend regular therapy sessions to cope with their traumatic
pasts. The sparks that ensue when Echo is appointed Noah’s tutor creates a love
story that no one saw coming.

Where She Went by Gayle Foreman (2012 winner)
you loved Gayle Foreman’s book If I Stay,
then you’re gonna freak over Where
She Went. This book follows up on Mia’s life at Juilliard after her tragic
accident years ago. It’s all about heart-wrenching love, music and New York
City—what more could you want?
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver (2011 winner)
“Everything happens for a
reason” may be a cliché, but that does not make it any less true, and it’s
exactly the lesson Samantha Kingston learns in this book. Sam goes from popular
to gone in just one day when she dies in a car accident. This story follows
Sam’s intense journey from sadness to acceptance as she relives the fateful day
seven times over.
by Ally Carter (2010 winner)
for the family business usually means working at a bakery or an auto shop, but
not for this teen. When Katarina Bishop tries to ditch the biz for boarding
school, she ends up getting pulled right back in—but for an unlikely reason.
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
book is a romantic whirlwind. Nora Grey didn’t know she would find herself
falling for the easygoing hottie Patch, or how tangled her entire life would
become because of it. If you’re in need of a dramatic, thought-provoking book, Hush, Hush is one you def need to pick
Veronica Roth (2012 winner)
this worldwide fave in our list was a no-brainer. If you haven’t read it yet
then, uh, what are you waiting for?! This dystopian novel is all about making
choices, which is easier said than done. Pick up a copy today and then hit
theaters to see the crazy chemistry between Shailene Woodley and Theo James in Divergent on the silver screen.
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead (2008 winner)
If you didn’t catch the
flick based on this book starring Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry and Sarah Hyland then
you seriously missed out. While waiting for the DVD release, reading the book
is a must. It’s a punch of sass and
edge, packed into a boarding school you’re definitely gonna wanna attend.
