Youth Media Awards

Want to read the best of what's been published for young adults over the past year? Luckily for you, the winners of this year's Youth Media Awards were announced last week!

The Printz Award for excellence in young adult literature went to Jandy Nelson's I'll Give You the Sun (which Mrs. Penza recommends!). Runners up this year were And We Stay by Jenny Hubbard, The Carnival at Bray by Jessie Ann Foley, Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith (which I recommend!), and This One Summer by Mariko and Jillian Tamaki.

Looking for more great reads? How about the Best Fiction for Young Adults list? Or the YALSA Nonfiction Award? Or the Alex Award if you're not so into young adult literature?
