I will say that I heartily recommend the Lois Lowry trilogy: The Giver, Gathering Blue, and Messenger, and believe them to be fascinating and stunning in all their sci-fi/dystopia glory.
Also, if you're into star-crossed romance, scandals, and a historical setting where the girls get to wear awesome dresses (1899-1900), check out The Luxe series: The Luxe, Rumors, and Envy. Yes, there's a final book out called Splendor - but I haven't read it yet! These books make for fun, fast reading!
So - I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!
See you in 2010!
Wishing you all get piles of books under the tree,
