2009 BBYAs

And the award-winnings keep rolling in...
Soon enough, the lean months will be here, and I'll have to come up with other things to post than just lists of awards results, but fortunately those days aren't here yet.

Yesterday, the ALA announced the 2009 Best Books for Young Adults, which is too long to type out in its entirety here, but there are plenty of familiar faces on it, plus some less known titles.

And here's the Top Ten:
It's Complicated: The American Teenager, Robin Bowman
Waiting for Normal, Leslie Conner
Mexican WhiteBoy, Matt de la Pena
Bog Child, Siobhan Dowd
The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins
Ten Cents a Dance, Christine Fletcher
Baby, Joseph Monninger
Nation, Terry Pratchett
Skim, Mariko Mamaki
The Brothers Torres, Coert Voorhees
