Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
Shine by Lauren Myracle
The Floating Islands by Rachael Neumeier
The Queen of Water by Laura Resau
Bluefish by Pat Schmatz

Stick by Andrew Smith
The Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Lani Taylor
The Berlin Boxing Club by Robert Sharenow
Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma
The Isle of Blood by Rick Yancey
Blood Red Road by Moira Young

Have we overlooked anything? (Chime is purposefully absent from our list. I tried reading it long before the National Book Award debacle and found it completely boring. I couldn’t finish it – though I read the last few pages and it validated my decision.)
