Ten must-read YA novels you've probably never heard of

Guardian children's books site teen blogger John Hansen tagged ten must-read YA novels that deserve a bigger following, including:
The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone by Adele Griffin

It’s written like a longform piece of journalism. After Addison Stone, a talented street artist, mysteriously drowns, her former teacher investigates her death. The book itself is a compilation of the teacher’s findings, relaying what happened to Addison through interviews with Addison’s friends, which are interwoven with pictures of both Addison and her art. It’s a gripping read with a seriously ominous ending, and, because all of the characters are fictional, the way the author decided to tell the story makes it one of the most unique books I’ve ever read.
