NPR's 100 Best-Ever Teen Novels

Ah, lists.....you love them, you hate them....and EVERYONE seems to have at least one to share.  National Public Radio (NPR) asked for favorite young adult novels, and more than 75,000 people responded.  They compiled a Top 100 List, along with a list of the 235 finalists. 

Do you agree with this list?  Would you add or remove any titles?  I'd love to hear what you think!

Hi Lisa,
I love The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and am glad to see it is so far up on the list. I think it might win the Printz award this year. John Green is a great ya author. I thought most of the items on the list belonged on the list. I was surprised there were no Cythia Voight books on the list and only Forver by Judy Blume. I feel both authors capture a strong ya voice. I also enjoyed A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly.
But all and all it was a really good list.
Have a good day,
Katie
