Hate List by Jennifer Brown
"The book deals with a high school student struggling in the aftermath of a school shooting. Despite the weight of the subject matter, it’s a great read. It’s full of emotions — sad ones, happy ones, and suspenseful ones. Although Brown writes a lot of YA novels, she writes about important issues that will interest all ages."  Emily

Every Day by David Levithan
"It’s an amazing read about identity and who one truly is. The main character changes bodies each day, so you never know what will happen."  Katie

I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak
"Everybody knows Zusak for The Book Thief, but this novel is just as beautiful and powerful. It reminds anyone who feels stranded in their twenties that you don’t need to be famous or anything special to make a huge difference in the world. All you need to be is kind."  Jen

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
"It is probably one of my all-time favorites. Taking place in a world where everyone can hear your thoughts, it’s a beautiful take on the classic coming-of-age story." Megan

These are just five on a list of 27 - and there were actually a few more Teen titles on the list, including Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs (March 4, 2016 movie directed by Tim Burton), the Jessica Darling series by Megan McCafferty, and Private Peaceful, a historical fiction about two brothers set in WWI (that I just checked out to read!) by Michael Morpurgo (he also wrote "War Horse").
