Help! I need "clean" book recommendations!

I need help.

I'm putting together a list of clean reads for teens for my library. I have a quite a list of older books (published over 2 years ago), but am short on the newer books (published within the last 2 years or so).

They need to minimal violence, no sex, drugs, drinking, sex, or swearing. Just a nice, gentle read for teens.

Any suggestions?

Ready? Here we go:

Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst (Vampires)
The Swan Kingdom by Zoe Marriott
Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs
Inside Out by Maria V Snyder
Toads and Diamonds by Heather Tomlinson
The Swan Maiden by Heather Tomlinson
Birthmarked by Caragh O'Brien
Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George
Brain Jack by Brian Falkner
The Princess and the Hound by Mette Ivie Harrison
Entwined by Heather Dixon
Threads and Flames by Esther Friesner
Matched by Ally Condie
Enchanted Ivy by Sarah Beth Durst
ANYTHING YA by Shannon Hale (B1000 and EB has slight nudity, though)

Okay. I went through the books I've read in 2009-present and these are the most squeaky clean I can remember. I don't read anything with really intense content, so these (if I'm remembering correctly) are really tame.
