Okay, December actually means a lot of things. But one of them is that the “Best of 2010” lists are published! Newspapers, magazines, and Web sites like Amazon.com select the best books of the year and publish their lists just in time for holiday shopping (and better yet, snow day reading!). Every source has a slightly different list, but here are some of the young adult novels that keep turning up on list after list. They really are the best of the best!
