- Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson
- The Underneath by Kathi Appelt
- What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell
- The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart
- The Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp
The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau Banks is a hilarious look at an exclusive boys-only secret society at a private high school and Frankie's (a girl) attempt to take it over.
The Underneath is a touching, poetic story of an old hound dog, two kittens, a thousand-year-old snake and a bitter, angry man. I couldn't put it down.
I'm off to read The Spectacular Now next. I'll post the winner tonight!
EDIT: The winner is What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell. Come get it at the library today!
