Speak -- a quintessential teen novel, adapted by Lifetime, about finding your voice after rape, by Laurie Halse Anderson.
Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac -- released in Japan earlier this year, I have high hopes that it will make its way to the U.S. A great take on a not-so-classic romance by Gabrielle Zevin.
