Here is a list of all the books that are CURRENTLY AVAILABLE or COMING SOON for you to read, from the nominations for Best Fiction for Young Adults. These are to read for the American Library Association YA event on Sunday, June 24. Some of you expressed interest in going with us to give your feedback, to be rewarded with lunch and free Advance Reader Copies of young adult novels.
Remember to make some notes when you finish the book; the objective in inviting you to speak to the authors and publishers and librarians is for you to tell them what you liked and what you didn’t, and WHY. So be sure you keep a notebook, or a computer file, or something, with your responses to the books you read! You can bring it along on the day, to refresh your memory.
