Looking for YA recommendations

I was going through my site archives this morning, looking for some YA recommendations for a friend. I really used to read a lot of YA. I used to read a lot of really good YA. Sometime near the end of 2008 or early 2009 I kind of fell off the YA wagon. I kind of miss it.

So I'm looking for some really good YA recommendations, preferably not fantasy. (I'm still feeling a bit over-exposed to the fantasy worlds.)

Hit me with your best YA from the last couple of years. Pretty please?
