Top ten songs in teen novels

At the Guardian, Ema O'Connor tagged ten "of the most rockin’ songs mentioned in the most rockin’ books," including:
“Living for the City” by Stevie Wonder in Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

Nick and Nora may have different views on life, love, and the best way to get around New York City, but they have equally awesome taste in music. Told from alternating points of view, this quirky romance keeps readers amused and excited. Though every song in the book is worth a listen, this one is the perfect soundtrack to Nick and Nora’s wild adventures around downtown Manhattan.
Read about the other entries on the list.

Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist is among Jeff Somers's five must-reads aimed at kids that people of all ages will enjoy.
