Bulletin Blue Ribbons

The Bulletin Blue Ribbons list is out, and it's packed with YA this year. As they say: "it’s probably the oldest-aimed fiction list, overall, that we’ve ever put on Blue Ribbons. Has the increasing attention to YA fiction in prestigious circles tipped the writing balance?" In fact, the entire list, which can include YA as well as books for middle readers, can be considered YA this year, although some titles are aimed at the youngest, junior-high-age young adult readers:

Octavian Nothing II: The Kingdom on the Waves, M.T. Anderson
Audrey, Wait!, Robin Benway
A Curse Dark as Gold, Elizabeth C. Bunce
Mexican WhiteBoy, Matt de la Peña
Ten Cents a Dance, Christine Fletcher
Runemarks, Joanne Harris
Tender Morsels, Margo Lanagan
Season of Ice, Diane Les Becquets
Hippie Chick, Joseph Monninger
Nation, Terry Pratchett
Living Dead Girl, Elizabeth Scott
Satchel Paige: Striking Out Jim Crow, James Sturm
