This is a bit late, but I still wanted to post it.  Every year YALSA releases its Top Ten Best Books for Young Adults from that year.  Here is the list for 2009:

  • It’s Complicated: The American Teenager by Robin Bowman
  • Waiting for Normal by Leslie Conner
  • Mexican WhiteBoy by Matt de la Pena
  • Bog Child by Siobhan Dowd
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  • Ten Cents a Dance by Christine Fletcher
  • Baby by Joseph Monninger
  • Nation by Terry Pratchett
  • Skim by Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki
  • The Brothers Torres by Coert Voorhees

Though these are the top ten, there is a compete list of 86 “best books” of the year.  Check out the entire list here.
