This is a bit late, but I couldn't NOT post about my favorites of 2010! 2010 was a fantastic year for YA literature and I hope 2011 will be better! Cheers to 2010! Here are the FIVE best YA contemporaries out there!
The Tension of Opposites by Kristina McBride - I just loved the chemistry between Max and Tessa. And add bad-ass Noelle into the mix? You're in for some drama! I love how the photography and the events come together here. Kristina's writing is flawless.
The Deadly Sister by Eliot Schrefer - This is a great contemporary with some MAJOR psychological thriller-ness in the mix! Framing, murder, and drugs...what more can you want? Eliot Schrefer will seriously have you guessing who the killer is. And it isn't ANYBODY you expect.
The Star Shack by Lila Castle - Seriously, I never get tired of re-reading this book. This book is full of yummy, oozing summer romance! Anabelle and Peter are the cutest couple ever. And the little quirks in the book make it all the more enjoyable!
