Interesting YA purchases of late

This was a little odd - when I opened my last YA order, I found that I had ordered 4 titles that were written in verse of some sort:
Dead on Town Line
A Bad Boy can be Good for a Girl
Seeing Emily
The Crazy Man

Each of these books is different in theme and tone, and The Crazy Man is meant for the younger end of the YA spectrum. I am going to read A Bad Boy can be Good for a Girl, because it sounds like several men I have known...

Taking a look around Amazon, it seems like the verse thing is exploding. The few books in verse that I had up until this point have circulated well, and have been popular with reluctant readers as well as voracious readers. Cool.
