As mentioned by Stephen Ashley in the post, #ALAAC18 Recap: #BFYA2019 Teen Feedback Session, the Best Fiction for Young Adults feedback session at #ALAAC18 was one of the highlights of the 2018 ALA Annual conference. The #BFYA19 blogging team enjoyed listening to teens share their insightful comments about the currently nominated fiction titles.
The BFYA team would love to hear from more teens. Those who would like to participate can do so by filling out the following BFYA 2019 Teen Feedback Form. The full list of current nominees with annotations is available here.

The Best Fiction for Young Adults feedback session is one of the best parts of every ALA conference. Local teens get the opportunity to read books that have been nominated for #BFYA and give their feedback about the titles. It’s always interesting to hear the perspective of real teens, and the group in New Orleans were particularly amazing. They all sounded like professional book reviewers, and I wish there had been time to talk with them at length about the books they enjoyed.
Here are some of the titles the teens particularly liked from this year’s #BFYA nominees list along with a little of their feedback and a link to each title’s nomination post (when available.)
