Aussie YA

I used to host the #OzYAChat on twitter with Shaheen and during these chats we'd have a lot of people wanting recommendations, so I thought I'd put together a list of my faves.

If I know of an international version I'll mention it. If the book has been published in multiple countries I will label it as published overseas (you can see the various editions via Goodreads so click on the links provided)
