2009 Teens' Top 10

We have them all! Get a bookmark in the YA Loft listing the top ten books for 2009 as chosen by a national panel of teens. On the list is Breaking Dawn (duh!) and The Hunger Games (no surprise there, either). The number one choice is Paper Towns by John Green. My favorite is The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau Banks, and I am very "appointed" that it made the list.
