Last week we asked which YALSA award you were most excited to find out the results for, and 75% of you cast your votes for the obvious winner: the Michael L. Printz Award for excellence in YA fiction. The award you were second most excited to hear about was the William C. Morris Award (9%) for a debut author, and the third was the Alex Awards (6%) for adult books with appeal to teens. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!

    I think it’s technically children’s but Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse is probably my favorite verse novel of all time.

    I absolutely loved Crossing Stones by Helen Frost. I was also pretty taken with Ringside, 1925: Views from the Scopes Trial by Jennifer Bryant.
