    "One of my favorite YA books is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. If you've read the other books in the series, you will love this one. This is my favorite book from all of the books in the series. The book contains one of the final battles of the series, and prepares the story to end soon. I recommend this as a good Young Adult book."

    "The best YA book of 2007 is Before I Die by Jenny Downham. Faced with the reality of dying in a few months, Tessa compiles a list of things she wants to do before she meets her maker. High up on the list is sex. It is an erotic yet thought-provoking story of how one young woman deals with mortality. "

    "A book about teenagers in a world of Vampires? Yawn! Marked is the first book in the House of Night series, and I figured maybe it would add something to the vampire genre, but the only thing it added to was the pile of books I started and couldn't be bothered to finish."

    "It is a potential option but I don't think that the description is all that great. It's poorly written and doesn't give me a lot of faith that this will be a good book."

    "I bought this novel for my teenage daughter a few weeks ago. She hasn't stopped talking about the 5 daughters and how they each are kind of like one of her personalities. My daughter struggles with some mental health issues but I think it is healthy for her to recognize and relate to things in this fashion."

    "Meg Cabot's Pants on Fire aspires to be a young adult romance set in a small town. I'm not sure if I'm now just jaded on these young adult novels especially the really contemporary ones, but this one didn't really do anything for me. I thought it was well written and engaging enough but I was never fully engaged. To be honest, I found it rather trite and boring. I think I just need a break from some of these books. The story is a typical one, and if you've been through one of these, it's much the same for the rest. Pants on Fire doesn't take any risk on breaking that mold. I suppose if you like this formula, it's right up your alley."

    "I absolutely love retellings of Fairy Tales and this is exactly what I was looking for. It's appropriately challenging without being either difficult or pandering so it makes for an excellent Young Adult novel. The dialogue is witty and the characters so enchanting that you'll be crying at the end just because you don't have any more book left."

    "I was looking for some books for my young adult daughter and came across "Poison Study" by Maria V. Snyder. I gave it a read through before recommending it and I was pleasantly surprised. The story is incredibly interesting and it will really keep you enchanted throughout. The main character is thrust into an awful situation and it is incredibly fun to watch her find her way through this mess she's in. I saw this book on a best of "2007" list of books for young adults and I feel that it definitely earned its place."

    "I read the reviews and descriptions about this book back in January and couldn't WAIT to order it! Well, I finally did and got pretty much what I expected. I'm not going to summarize this story, because its already been done in bunches of other reviews, however, I would like to point out that though Emily wants to prove that she doesn't have to be nice all the time, she takes it to the point where even she doesn't enjoy it anymore. On top of that, I felt like the only round characters in the book were Luke, TJ, her dad, and Owen (even though Owen's only mentioned a few times.) Josie, though she came from a humble background, recently became rich and now has a fairy tale life, except that she's let it get to her at several points. Lucy is a nice girl, but since she hadn't dated any horrible guys, she didn't really have all that much to add to the book. I felt like Emily could have easily avoided all the drama and heartbreaking if she had just come clean earlier. I know, I know, coming clean is a lot easier said than done, but sometimes the reasons don't hold up. Emily should have realized that her best friends wouldn't have cared if she fell for their experiement. I really did like the book, and it's definitely one I'll be reading again, I just had a few issues with the character developement. I'm excited to try Plan B soon! "
