Young Adult Fiction

So I've recently embraced a love of young adult fiction. This may be because I get most of my books out of school library (which is excellent especially for being in Paraguay), but mostly because it just seems like they are better stories. I guess if you're going to keep a teenager reading you have to write a good story. Some of my favorite are The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, all of the series by Tamora Pierce (both of these first ones have strong female heroines), the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling, the Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer (yes, even though many of my friends have said they're horrible I'll speak up and say I enjoy reading them), and my most current reads the Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander. Any one out there have some other recommendations for me?
