20 of Our Favorite YA Novels: Who Should Play the Lead?

It seems like every YA novel that comes out these days gets turned into a movie in a few years time. Even the ones that haven't happened yet seem to be CONSTANTLY talked about as the next book-turned-blockbuster. Heck, even books that haven't come out yet sell their movie rights before their release dates! How crazy is that? Even with all the transformation from the page to the screen going on, we've still managed to find a few great YA novels that need movies, and even a few that just need remakes. But who should play the leads in these classics? We have a few suggestions, but which books do you think desperately need to be movies? And who should play your favorite characters?
