We're so thrilled to see that the four following compulsively readable titles have all been officially nominated for YALSA’s 2013 Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers List:
THE HUNT by Andrew Fukuda
BAD BOY* by Dream Jordan
GLOW by Amy Kathleen Ryan
I AM A SEAL TEAM SIX WARRIOR by Howard E. Wasdin and Stephen Templin
YALSA says, "The Quick Picks list [...] suggests books that teens, ages 12-18, will pick up on their own and read for pleasure; it is geared to the teenager who, for whatever reason, does not like to read."
We'll have our fingers crossed until ALA's 2013 Midwinter Meeting when they'll announce the final list (wish us luck typing and tying our shoes)!
*You may recall that BAD BOY was also officially nominated for the 2013 Best Fiction for Young Adults Committee’s consideration (post)!
