YALSA, the Young Adult Library Services Association, just came out with its 2011 Best Fiction for Young Adults. Here’s their mission:
“The books, recommended for ages 12-18, meet the criteria of both good quality literature and appealing reading for teens. The list comprises a wide range of genres and styles, including contemporary realistic fiction, fantasy, horror, science fiction and novels in verse.”
I’m thrilled to be there with more of my favorite books of the year, like LOCKDOWN by Walter Dean Myers and COSMIC by Frank Cottrell Boyce. Thank you, YALSA!
