Dude, how did I miss the review of The Year's Best Science Fiction and Fantasy for Teens, over at the LA Times? How random of me. Lo siento. The anthology was edited by Jane Yolen and Patrick Nielsen Hayden. You know Jane Yolen. If you don't know Jane Yolen, make her acquaintance. The person who wrote the review is a blogger by the name of Anne Boles Levy. Duuuuuuuude, whoa, a blogger.
Warning: do not follow the link for Ms. Levy's blog published by the LA Times; it won't, like, take you anywhere.
