Eleven top YA novels for grownup readers

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Kathryn Williams came up with eleven top Young Adult books for readers of all ages. One book she tagged:
Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock, by Matthew Quick

Murder-suicide is not traditionally considered safe YA ground, which is what makes Matthew Quick’s latest novel daring and also great for adult YA readers. With a damaged and lost (but not irretrievable) protagonist in the titular Leonard Peacock, this book might interest fans of Jay Asher’s 13 Reasons Why (though be prepared for some quirkier narrative devices).
Read about the other titles on the list.
