NPR is collecting votes for "Best Ever Teen Novels." You can only pick 10. I chose these from the list they gave:

  • Before I Die 
  • Before I Fall 
  • The Book Thief 
  • The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time
  • The Hunger Games 
  • I Am the Cheese 
  • Make Lemonade 
  • Nation 
  • A Northern Light 
  • Thirteen Reasons Why 

Some of the comments bring up the differences between middle-grade and young-adult fiction. And strongly disagree with the rating committee's delineations. And have fits that "Ender's Game" was left out.

Here is NPR's response.
