Top 100 YA novels...did yours make the cut?

Check out NPR's top 100 teen books voted by over 75,000 readers this summer.  Does your fave make the cut?

Before perusing the article, I thought about which titles create my personal list ...
  1. Speak - Laurie Halse Anderson (#26)
  2. Harry Potter series - J. K. Rowling (#1)
  3. Akata Witch - Nnedi Okorafor
  4. Thirteen Reasons Why - Jay Asher (#24)
  5. Remember Me - Christopher Pike
  6. Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants - Ann Brashares (#32)
  7. Uglies - Scott Westerfield (#28)
  8. Feed - M. T. Anderson (#88)
  9. Lock and Key - Sarah Dessen
  10. Go Ask Alice - Beatrice Sparks (#35)
  11. Forever - Judy Blume (#46)
All but three showed up.  The fun part?  This list will forever grow, morph, change and one day have my novel tucked somewhere in between (got to have a healthy ego)
