100 Best-Ever Teen Novels

I found out from WORD for Teens that NPR allowed users to vote for their favorite teen novels, so here's the list! Like what WORDS for Teens stated, it was more of a popularity test than anything. ._.

The * means that I've read it or some of the books in the series, and the ~ means that I own but have yet to read.
