Published in June (2011)

Here are some of the teenage/YA titles that are being published in the UK in June 2011. I will put a link to this post and previous and subsequent "monthly" lists in my sidebar. January's list can be found here, February's here, March's here, April's here and May's here. Title links go to Please let me know of others to add to the list. In general I have not included re-issues and have stuck to UK publishers.

Monthly lists for 2010 can be found here.
