Ten books were named for the Alex Award, which are adult books that will appeal to teens.
Many other books were honorable mentions. Please check the ALA/YALSA website at www.ala.org/yalsa .
There you will find all the nominees and winners.
We have or will have very soon all of these books at the library. Come and check out the award winners.
