The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen: A group of boys are taken and taught to impersonate the prince. Which one will "win?"
Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver: The story of Lena and her new life in the wilds.
The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanan: A runner gets in a car accident and loses her foot, and how she deals with her new life.
The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters: A doctor in post war England is fascinated with an old house and its occupants.
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness: A young boy is dealing with his mother's illness.
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood: An account of one woman's experience in a society where woman all have a very specific role to fill.
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater: A group of prep school friends are trying to find a long lost king.
Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson: Marianne runs into a dashing dude while on her way to visit Edenbrooke for the summer.
I don't think there was one downer for me, and how to pick a favorite? I loved The Raven Boys, Edenbrooke and Pandemonium, with all the rest in second place I suppose.
