Introducing Steampunk

What is Steampunk? According to Wikipedia, it's a sub-genre of science fiction, usually set in a Victorian-era time period (or, sort of Victorian, sometimes it includes alternative history) using technology we're familiar with - but usually steam-powered.

It's a really popular genre - so check out some of these teen books and see what you think.
