Seven new YA novels that deal with death

At B & N Teen Blog, Shaun Byron Fitzpatrick tagged seven new YA novels that deal with death, including:
My Heart and Other Black Holes, by Jasmine Warga

Aysel wants to kill herself, but doesn’t think she can go through with it alone. Then she meets Roman in a suicide chatroom, and they agree to be “suicide partners,” each making sure the other ultimately ends their life. But will Aysel still want to die after her feelings for Roman start to change? This darkly funny novel takes us inside the world of two talented but depressed teens who can’t decide if life is worth the heartache. Warga makes us fall for Aysel, while offering an unflinching look at teen depression and suicide.
