I can hardly believe it, but this is the last crop of novels in my "Books of 2010" debut feature. I hope you've enjoyed this look at many of the year's new books.
Anna and the French Kiss, by Stephanie Perkins. Young adult. Anna is sent off to boarding school in Paris, where she meets the attractive Étienne. Unfortunately, he already has a girlfriend.
The Mockingbirds, by Daisy Whitney. Young adult. A date-raped student turns to a student-led group for justice.
Inconvenient, by Margie Gelbwasser. Fifteen-year-old Alyssa copes with a crush, popularity problems--and an alcoholic mother.
