Booklist: Contemporary Sci-Fi for Kids and Teens

A few years ago, Colleen of Chasing Ray posted about the lack of sci-fi titles for teens. At that time, we discussed how science fiction does not seem to be as readily available right now in the teen department as, say, fantasy, drama, or romance. The discussion we had in her blog's comments prompted this list, which is composed of young adult sci-fi books that I have enjoyed and which have been released in the past decade.
