Five of the best moms in YA fiction

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog, Dahlia Adler tagged the five best moms in YA novels, including:
Cate (Life By Committee, by Corey Ann Haydu)

Rare is the YA about teen mothers (How to Love, by Katie Cotugno, is a great one), but even rarer is one where the main character’s mother gave birth to her when she was a teen herself. Cate was 16 when Tabitha was born, and now that Tab’s reached the same age, her mom’s got the friend/parent balance down pat. Not that Tab’s dad, Paul, is too shabby either…but Cate’s the half of the couple that doesn’t routinely smell like a Phish concert.
