Truly Great Fantasy

A Listmania! list by JayneSeer
The list author says: "As a middle school librarian I'm constantly barraged by student's asking for "Great Fantasy" books. So in an effort to keep the general population sated and happy I've compiled a list of those books either I, or my aide have read recently and feel fall into the category of "Truly Great Fantasy" for the YA set. Of course this list is purely subjective, but with more than 20,000 books in the collection, these stand out as the best. Enjoy!"
