10. Room by Emma Donoghue
11. Stone Butch Blues by Leslie Feinberg

10. Room by Emma Donoghue
It wasn't my favourite, but I did like it. The narration/voice was sometimes unbelievable, but I liked it as a device especially in showing not how young the boy was but his mother, especially after their rescue when she's recovering and wanting to get her life back. I also liked the transition from the boy missing the room to, ultimately, wanting to be outside of it.

11. Stone Butch Blues by Leslie Feinberg
This book was eye-opening and absolutely amazing but also absolutely devastating. I can't remember where this was recommended since I had it on my to-read list for so long but just wow. If push comes to shove and I had to choose one book I read in 2011 to recommend, I'd go with Stone Butch Blues. I think it's a book that everyone should read though one should be prepared for some potentially disturbing content.
