message 1: by Marie (new)

Marie Last time I checked, Veronica Roth's Insurgent was not a debut. READ DIVERGENT!!!


Petra (Safari Poet) It's been removed. I think sometimes début get confused with new releases or the person was excited about the book and wanted to bring it to everyone's attention by voting for it. No harm meant.


message 3: by Adrianne (new)

Adrianne De Veyra Loved The Selection though!


message 4: by Ren (new)

Ren I just removed Incarnation by Emma Cornwall. Its debut, but not YA. My friend that already read that book had confirmed it :)


message 5: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth Day I'm pretty sure at least one of these books didn't come out in 2012.... Divergent didn't come out this year, did it?


Petra (Safari Poet) If you find a book that isn't a YA book or doesn't debut in 2012, please leave a comment in this discussion with a link to this list, so a GR Librarian can remove it.


message 7: by Kris-10 (new)

Kris-10 I just wanted to let you know that I removed Divergent by Veronica Roth because it's not a 2012 debut.


message 8: by Shona (new)

Shona Lawrence several books in this list are second and third books in a series. I also saw The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan, this is the 3rd book in a series in what i believe is his 3rd series.
