I've done searches for this, but I haven't quite found what I'm looking for. So, I thought I would ask. I'm going to be teaching at an inner city high school this year and they want me to teach a young adult literature as an elective class. I've been told I can choose a few different books and they'll get me class sets. I want something fairly new, but it can't be Hunger Games since another teacher is teaching that. If you could teach any young adult lit book, what would it be and why?
