Popular Paperbacks for Young Adults: Field Suggestions Are Open
This year’s committee is compiling lists for these three themes:
- Humor Me: Funny, Fantastic and Witty Reads
- Conflicted: Life During Wartime
- GLBTQ: Books with Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgendered, Queer-questioning, Intersexed, Asexual Individuals, and Their Allies
We’re excited to work with such relevant, current themes, and to have a chance to update the Humor and GLBTQ lists, both of which were originally created over five years ago.
Field nominations from librarians, teachers, teens, and any enthusiastic reader of young adult literature are very welcome.
