Christie’s Top 10 YA Reads of 2013

When we talk about our top ten YA book picks of the year, it’s always hard to just pick top ten….  Everything is influenced in some way. I am chair of the Rainbow Project, which looks at books birth through 18 with GLBTQ content, and so I read (and have access to more) GLBTQ materials than others (Winger, Coda, Patomime). Because of factors in my life, I’m more aware of those titles. 
I’ve dealt with a lot of hardship and death in the past year, and I’ve tended to gravitate more towards the dystopias and gritty fantasies this year, instead of the more realistic fiction (Prophecy, Scarlet, The Madness Underneath).
I also am a compulsive series finisher, and was not disappointed
(The Clockwork Princess, Champion).
 And even though it wasn’t published in 2013,
I read The Perks of Being a Wallflower for the first time this year and it definitely makes my top ten this year.

What would be your top ten YA for 2013?
