Graceling by Kristin Cashore
In this debut fantasy novel, Cashore treats readers to compelling and eminently likable characters and a story that draws them in from the first paragraph. In Katsa's world, the "Graced," those gifted in a particular way, are marked by eyes that are different colors. Katsa's Grace is that she is a gifted fighter, and, as such, she is virtually invincible. She is in the service of her tyrannical uncle, king of one of the seven kingdoms, and she is forced to torture people for infractions against him. She has secretly formed the Council, which acts in the service of justice and fairness for those who have been accused and abused. -- From School Library Journal

The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson

She has just awoken from a coma, they tell her, and she is still recovering from a terrible accident in which she was involved a year ago. But what happened before that? Jenna doesn't remember her life. Or does she? And are the memories really hers? -- From Amazon.com

The Farm by Emily McKay
Seventeen-year-old Lily remembers the Before, a time before the Ticksâ€”genetically mutated, vampirelike beingsâ€”took over and teenagers were corralled like livestock onto government-run farms for their blood. But, as in Loganâ€™s Run, thereâ€™s an expiration date on the teensâ€™ usefulness, and 18 is only a few days away. Lily is planning a desperate escape with her autistic twin sister, Mel. When Carter, a boy from her past, suddenly shows up, she discovers that escaping is the easy part.
