Although this book has been out for awhile, and the original novels were out for years and I never noticed them, I think the best book I've read this year, it a collection of the four books in the series and it's called "The Year I Turned Sixteen". It's not my usual genre, nothing fantastical happens or anything, but it was absolutely captivating.
