- Liar and Spy by Rebecca Stead - because I loved When You Reach Me.
- Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein - because it sounds fascinating and I keep hearing rave reviews.
- Son by Lois Lowry (and also Gathering Blue and Messenger) - because I really liked The Giver.
- Every Day by David Levithan - because it sounds completely unique.
- The Paladin Prophecy by Mark Frost - because I just read a review and it sounds great.
- My Family for the War by Anne C. Voorheeve - because it is about an aspect of WWII I know little about (the kindertransport).
- Paper Towns or Looking for Alaska by John Green - because he is one of the top authors in the world now, and I've only read 1 of his novels (and The Fault in Our Stars is already on my shelf witing!).
- Safekeeping by Karen Hesse - because it sounds like a different, more introspective kind of post-apocalyptic novel.
- Shadow on the Mountain by Margi Preus - because it looks at WWII from childrens' perspectives.
- Ruins by Orson Scott Card - this one is kind of a cheat because we already have it, but I am dying to read this sequel to Pathfinder!
