Noel's Runners-Up:
Impossible, by Nancy Werlin
The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins
Sweethearts, by Sara Zarr

I agree with your first YA choice, and I really want to read your second.

Your fantasy picks I will withhold commentary on, seeing as I'm a judge... ;)

Oh, come on, you know I'm right. ;)

*sigh* and now it will be forever before you have a chance to pick up Jellicoe. Ah, well...
