With photographs of real kids, The New Kid by Susan Hood presents real experience by kids at school. When a kid is new in a new environment, he can "act bad", because "he is sad".

From these books, they create a Top Ten list with their picks for the best Young Adult books of the year. Make some time to catch up with the best of the best for 2010:
It's another interesting batch of fiction and nonfiction, with themes ranging from magic to immigration to survival at sea to vampire comedy to Asperger's Syndrome to colonial Jamestown and much more. (Whoa, imagine if these were all in the same book?) Happy reading and Happy New Year!
