The 2011 YA Contemporary Challenge

Reggie at The Undercover Book Lover is hosting a YA Contemporary challenge for 2011!  While it was vampires who drew me to YA sometimes a girl needs real life.  I also find contemporary to be a great pick me up after dystopia so this challenge is actually perfect.

What is contemporary? It's the genre wherein the events can happen in real life at the present time. The characters in the novel can be present in real life.

Goal: To read a minimum of thirteen young adult contemporary novels published in 2011.

- All contemporary books must be in the Young Adult genre
- Books have to be published in 2011
- Open to everybody.
- You can join whenever you want
