NPR's great YA reads for summer

Earlier this summer (and it is still summer, even though it always feels like once school starts, it's not), NPR focused on four great YA read:

Flip by Martyn Bedford. I really loved this book! You can see my review: http://aprilhenry.livejournal.com/921252.html

Delirium by Lauren Oliver. While I loved her first book, I never bought the initial premise of Delirium, which was that the entire population willingly decides to be altered so they can never love. They see love as a kind of crazy (which I could buy) and the root of all problems (which I couldn’t)

Ten Miles Past Normal by Frances O'Roark. (haven't read)

Trapped by Michael Northrop Read and liked. It was like a thriller where the serial killer is the weather.

Karma by Cathy Ostlere (haven't read)

Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
