December is a wonderful time of year for many reasons. And one of them is that the “Best of 2012″ 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 list is different, but some of these young adult novels have turned up on list after list. They really are the best of the best!
