My Favorite Teen Reads of 2008

This list is not only books that were published in 2008, but Teen books that I read for the first time in 2008. Therefore, I must begin my list with Twilight , New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer.

Followed closely by Safe by Susan Shaw, Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson and Twisted by Laurie Halse Anderson.

Next, we have Boy Toy by Barry Lyga and Prey by Lurlene McDaniels

Finally we have Nancy Werlin's Rules of Survival and Sara Zarr's Story of a Girl.

My Favorite book of 2008 does not deal with vampires of werewolves, but with weight and the human condition.
The winner of my first annual best Teen book award for 2008 is Big Fat Manifesto
by Susan Vaught.

And the final book in my Favorite Teen Reads of 2008 is on the list because as a Floridian, I like the idea of my governor becoming president especially if it's a woman. And it was a great book all together, fellow Floridian, Donna Gephart's As if Being 12 3/4 isn't bad enough, My Mother is Running for President!
