Even though it's early spring, I'm gonna go out on a limb & declare this is my favorite YA of the year! I immediately fell in love with these characters, especially Ramona Blue. Real, quirky, full of humor, heart, sister-love, swimming, blue hair and small town life. For fans of Fangirl and, of course, Dumplin'. Recommended by Alena

El Deafo explores the personal story of a young girl who goes deaf. I find it really cool and it gives an interesting perspective on the deaf community. 10/10 would read again!! Recommended by Lilah
Tiffany Aching is the quick-witted, determined, and a tad snarky heroine of this amazing adventure through fairy tales and dreams. Like a female Harry Potter, without the fame and glory. Recommended by Rachel
Fantastic characters and a really cool ending. A meaningful story, but the meaning may be different for each reader. Great characters! Recommended by Sally.

Louis Sachar ("Holes", "The Card Turner") as done it again. A shortcut through the woods. A pond of mud that seems alive ( and growing!) What could possibly go wrong. Recommended by Terry
Thrilling sequel to Illusive.
Recommended by Everyone At the Gallery Bookshop! (Including Catsby)

You won't want to miss this series; perfect summer read, perfect in the fog by the fire read, perfect read!
Stand-alone sequel to Newbery Honor Book Evolution of Calpurnia Tate. No wizards, dragons, or zombies. Just a great read for any young lady with an independent spirit. I highly recommend it. Recommended by Terry

Julep Dupree is a teen criminal who is looking to get out of the grifter life and to attend Yale. To get there, she will need to employ all of her 'unique' skills, but when her mentor father goes missing, all of her plans come crashing down. Julep is a wildly funny narrator, independent and snarky and wonderfully flawed. Readers will enjoy every minute of her witty interior monologue. This is a fast-paced read that is almost criminally addictive! Recommended by Emily
