You know what, guys?
We never properly celebrated the fact that two of our totally stellar teen titles from St. Martin's Griffin were officially nominated for YALSA's 2013 Best Fiction for Young Adults reading list!
Well, it's never too late to party, so let's hear it for...
Kate has been institutionalized her entire life, but things start to look up when she connects with a handsome stranger. But can she heed the warning signs of his abusive behavior?
Gemma's graceful swimming draws the attention of Penn, Thea, and Lexi, the gorgeous newcomers to her sleepy beachside town. But popularity isn't everything, and the dark secret they harbor threatens everything.
YALSA compiles this annual list to provide librarians with a resource to use for collection development and reader's advisory purposes.
The selection committee will discuss all of the excellent nominations at ALA Annual next month and finish their deliberations at Midwinter in January during which the final BFYA list will be selected and announced!Read more
Whew, what a conference! Midwinter was a delight this year. We're so glad we got a chance to catch up with so many of you.
