This weekend, the ALA ( American Library Association) held their mid-year conference in Boston. Here is a link to twitter updates of the teen session, discussing the best books for teens from the past year.Here is a link to the complete list of winners. Some of my favorite books of the year won awards, including Going Bovine by Libba Bray, Charles and Emma by Deborah Heiligman, and The Rock and The River by Keekla Magoon. I am going to read The Rock and the River next- after I finish reading last years Printz award winner, Jellico Road by Melina Marchetta. Look for the list of award winners in the IMC and start reading!
