The Other Side of the Island
by Allegra Goodman

In a post-apocalyptic future, Honor thinks she's being sent to an island paradise in the sky. Could this book be ever so slightly similar to The Time Machine by H.G. Wells?

The Secret Society of the Pink Crystal Ball
by Risa Green
Sourcebooks Fire
August 2010

Contemporary fiction about a girl who is bequeathed a magic (or is it?) crystal ball when her aunt passes away. It reminds me, just a little bit of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

In a dystopian future, Cassia starts to question if she wants to continue to live by the Society's rules.

by Julianna Baggott

February 2012

A disturbing dystopian future, where citizens must either be trained as soldiers or serve as live target practice. Meanwhile, a group of "pures" have hunkered down inside a dome. Sounds riveting!

Any that I missed? Let me know in the comments.
