Many of us look back on the "young adult" years of our life and remember both broad brush strokes of volatile feelings and now-inconsequential details of school politics and heartbreak. The rush of hormones thrown in haphazardly didn't do much for lending clarity, either. It also happens to be the stage of life where you are most out of place, not quite a kid, not really an adult , which can leave a lot of people feeling lost. They could create a new world, lend you a better understanding of the one you were in, or make you laugh out loud. And while we might have all believed we were the only people in our awkward ninth grade class to feel like a square peg in a round hole, the wonderful thing is that the older you get, the more you realize every single person went through the same thing. And the same books that made you feel less alone, that you connected with so fully, are likewise the things that a complete stranger might have felt and been glad for during the same precarious time.

It's almost a cliche at this point to say that teen fiction isn't just for teens anymore. Which is why we were only a little surprised to see the tremendous response that came in for this summer's Best-Ever Teen Fiction poll. A whopping 75, of you voted for your favorite young adult novels, blasting past the total for last year's science fiction and fantasy poll at, dare we say it, warp speed. And now, the final results are in. While it's no surprise to see Harry Potter and the Hunger Games trilogy on top, this year's list also highlights some writers we weren't as familiar with. Selecting a manageable voting roster from among the more than 1, nominations that came in from readers wasn't easy, and we were happy to be able to rely on such an experienced panel of judges. But deciding what does and doesn't count as a young-adult novel isn't an exact science. If you're surprised not to see some of your favorite books among the winners, you might want to look at this blog post , which describes the thinking behind the tough calls. Summer, like youth, is fleeting.
