Publishers Weekly's top children's fiction of 2012

Publishers Weekly named its top children's fiction of 2012.

One title on the list:
The Peculiar
Stefan Bachmann

Novels by teenage authors have become more common in recent years, but ones as dazzling as Bachmann's alternate history are rare. Fairies, steampunk mechanisms, and political subterfuge are the order of the day in Bachmann's version of Victorian England, which he describes in beguiling, detailed prose that establishes him as an author to be reckoned with—or at least thoroughly enjoyed.
Read about the other books on the list.
