Best Young Adult Books of 2011
Compiled by the Young Adult Librarian
As much as I try, I cannot read every young adult novel published in a year. These are my favorite books from all the books published within the past twelve months that I have read. Books are listed in alphabetical order by title except when an author has more than one book on the list.
These sequels and series titles are on order:
Three recent young adult novels feature ballerinas.
Several of the Glenside librarians went to see Breaking Dawn Part 1 on opening day.
Young Adult Librarian's Review:
Last night, we celebrated the upcoming release of Breaking Dawn Part 1 with a special program at the library. Teens discussed the books and movies and enjoyed wedding cake in honor of Edward and Bella.

Carmen was raised in inner-ctiy Chicago, and she explores her true passion for dance.
In honor of Halloween and the new television show based on The Secret Circle books, the teen blog presents ten young adult novels featuring witches both good and bad.

If you are a fan of The Walking Dead, you might view zombies as brain eating monsters. In some recent young adult fiction, zombies have been portrayed as very good looking undead. Whatever type of zombie you prefer, there is a recent young adult novel for you.
