YA (and more) books for your stocking

rounded up some of my very lovely fellow YA writers for which YA books they want to find in their stockings this christmas. some great recommended reads from some amazing authors. so, go. buy. read. you can’t go wrong–and there’s tons of cross over appeal for most of these books, too. (and i cheated, because some of these books aren’t out until 2012, but that’s because YA love knows no bounds…)
