Going Bovine by Libba Bray Cameron Smith, a disaffected sixteen year-old who, after being diagnosed with Creutzfeld Jakob's (aka mad cow) disease, sets off on a road trip with a death-obsessed video gaming dwarf he meets in the hospital in an attempt to find a cure.

Before I Die by Jenny Downham Four years after being diagnosed with leukemia, British teenager Tessa, 16, knows she has almost no time left. "I want to live before I die," she says, rushing to pack in the things on her to-do list, including sex, drugs, breaking the law, driving, bringing her parents back together, and fame (sort of).

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. Beautifully conceived and executed, this story artfully examines the largest possible considerations?life, love, and death?with sensitivity, intelligence, honesty, and integrity. In the process, Green shows his readers what it is like to live with cancer, sometimes no more than a breath or a heartbeat away from death. But it is life that Green spiritedly celebrates here, even while acknowledging its pain. In its every aspect, this novel is a triumph.
