You can find all of these books (when they're not checked out!) on the New Books shelves in YA Fiction at each library. Let us know what you think--write reviews, either on the Teen Meetup in the Burb interface, or for the blog! And don't forget to note them down in your reading log, too.

All the books that have links have been reviewed by one of us or by our guest bloggers, either on YAThink! or on the regular Burbank Library Blog.
