YALSA, the Young Adult Library Services Association, just came out with its 2011 Best Fiction for Young Adults list. I’m thrilled to have “Adios, Nirvana” on the list. Here’s the selection criteria:
“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.”
For more than 50 years, YALSA has been the world leader in selecting books, videos and audiobooks for teens. YALSA is a division of the American Library Association (ALA), which is the oldest and largest library organization in the world.
