Top Ten Teen Books

The American Library Association's Teen Read Week is over, and the results are in! Here are the top ten as voted by teens from around the United States:
  1. Girls In Pants: The Third Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares
  2. The Truth about Forever by Sarah Dessen
  3. Looking For Alaska by John Green
  4. My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult
  5. Drums, Girls and Dangerous Pie by Jordan Sonnenblick
  6. Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment by James Patterson
  7. The Gangsta Rap by Benjamin Zephaniah
  8. Teen Idol by Meg Cabot
  9. The Garden by Elise Aidinoff
  10. How I Paid for College: A Novel of Sex, Theft, Friendship & Musical Theater by Marc Acito
I've only read No. 1, so after I meet this deadline (hope springs eternal), I'll work my way down. Gangsta Rap might be the only Book Between Cultures on the list (UK-based Zephaniah also wrote Refugee Boy, the story of an Ethiopian in England). Are there others?
