Best Fiction for Young Adults list
"Each year, YALSA presents the Best Fiction for Young Adults list after ALA's Midwinter Meeting. This year's list of 98 books was drawn from 175 official nominations. The books, recommended for ages 12-18, meet the criteria of both good quality literature and appealing reading for teens. The list comprises a wide range of genres and styles, including contemporary realistic fiction, fantasy, horror, science fiction and novels in verse. In addition to the full list, the Best Fiction for Young Adults committee also created a Top Ten list of titles from the final list, denoted by an asterisk.
