I'm going to narrow it down to three: for contemporary, Alice Pung's bsolutely brilliant tale of class and cliques, LUCY AND LINH!

And for a book that walks the line between fantasy and contemp, Krystal Sutherland's dark and singular A SEMI-DEFINITIVE LIST OF WORST NIGHTMARES.(less)

“She talked like a woman who knew more books than people.”

“Everyone is supposed to be a combination of nature and nurture, their true selves shaped by years of friends and fights and parents and dreams and things you did too young and things you overheard that you shouldn’t have and secrets you kept or couldn’t and regrets and victories and quiet prides, all the packed-together detritus that becomes what you call your life.”
Melissa Albert, The Hazel Wood

“Life was a big thing to live without a map.”
