Staff Favourites of 2012 – Young Adult Fiction

Well, another year is just about done and another year of great reading is behind us. Here at The Reader we conducted our annual survey of Halifax Public Libraries staff to find out their favourite books of 2012. As always, they did not disappoint and once again proved themselves to be an enthusiastic group of eclectic readers. Not just adult books, they cried. We love children’s and young adult books as well. So here they are, our favourite young adult and children’s books of 2012. And what about you? What was your favourite book of 2012?
