Guide to Verse Novels: More Suggested Reads

So after buying and reading everything by Lisa Schroeder and Sonya Sones, I am now working my way through Ellen Hopkin's novels.  If Crank is anything to go by I know I am in for some great reading!  In addition to those three authors I also did my usual thing and looked for as many books in verse as possible  Unfortunately, much to my disappointment, my current bank balance is preventing me from buying them all, but here are all the ones I've found.  I think they all sound amazing!  I've also included a link to a preview if I've found one:)

Pieces of Georgia by Jen Bryant  (Amazon Browse Inside Preview)

I don't have any to add (although I *think* David Levithan has written a few verse novels) -- I just wanted to say thanks for the list, because I've been looking to get into verse novels, lately. This is really handy :)
