YA Novel Recommendations?

I've got some travel coming up, which always, always means reading time to me.  From long stretches in seat belts to spurts in hotel rooms to passing time in long lines, I'm geared to hang out with new characters and books.

I've got several ready in paperback and e-book form--except for this one, that I couldn't resist reading already:

OUT OF THE EASY is the story of a 17 year-old girl's struggle to leave the troubles of her 1950's New Orleans' French Quarter life behind her.  It was recommended to me by a fellow young adult author, and I certainly saw why.  Fast-paced with twists, turns and lots of action, it's a great read.

So now I thought I'd turn to our readers.  Any Young Adult book recommendations you can make for my travel reading, books you've read or are looking forward to reading?

Ooh, thanks for the recommendation! I loved BETWEEN SHADES OF GREY -- will definitely look for this one!

Some of my recent fave YA reads are ELEANOR & PARK, JELLICOE ROAD, CODE NAME VERITY, and MARCELO IN THE REAL WORLD. Really looking forward to A.S. King's REALITY BOY, which comes out in a week or so (I love ALL her books!), and then later this year, ROOMIES by Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando.
