Time to vote for NPR’s Best-Ever Teen Novels

You remember last month when you had the agonizing task of nominating your top five young adult novels of all time? Well, the nominations have been tabulated and the NPR staff have whittled it down to 235 finalists. Now it’s your job to vote for your top ten.

I was surprised by how easy the task was for me, as my picks added up to exactly ten:

  1. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
  2. The Lumatere Chronicles by Melina Marchetta
  3. The Piper’s Son by Melina Marchetta
  4. Chime by Franny Billingsley
  5. Divergent series by Veronica Roth
  6. The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley
  7. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
  8. Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley
  9. The Queen’s Thief Series by Megan Whalen Turner
  10. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater


What were your picks?
