Here are my Top 11 Teen Books of 2011. These selections are not ranked or in any particular order outside of alphabetical. And although most of them came out this year, one or two are less recent.
Abarat: Absolute Midnight by Clive Barker
Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer
Dust City by Robert Paul Weston
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey
Relic Master Books 1-3: The Dark City, The Lost Heiress and The Hidden Coronet by Catherine Fisher – I still need to read the fourth book in the series but I have no doubt that it will be just as awesome as the other three.
Beautiful Days by Anna Godbersen
The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
