Every January, a bunch of library folk get together at their semi-annual meeting and announce the winners of annual YA book awards. This is something I greatly look forward to each year, and spend early January scrambling to read as many of the award contenders as possible, as well as perusing YA blogs for predictions.
For a comprehensive list of the panoply of awards for young adult materials, click here.
I’ve read many opinions from bloggers, librarians, so-called-experts, etc., but I want to know what YOU (the real experts at enjoying YA literature) have to say! Vote for your pick for the 2013 Printz Award. The Michael L. Printz Award is given annually to the “best book written for teens, based entirely on its literary merit”. Vote now–do it!
I do apologize if your favorite book is not included in my list–please comment on this post with your pick.
