BBYA Display

I took down the Printz Award display this week, but in its place I put up titles from this year's Best Books for Young Adults (BBYA) list. BBYA titles are selected every year to show that YA books cover a range of interesting topics and excellent writing styles. This year's list has 91 great fiction and nonfiction books on it. You can find some of the titles on two display shelves in the Teen Corner.

Here are the BBYA 2006 Top Ten:
(The italicized titles are ones our library owns.)

  • Akbar, Said Hyder and Burton, Susan. Come Back to Afghanistan: A California Teenager's Story.
  • Bartoletti, Susan Campbell. Hitler Youth: Growing Up in Hitler's Shadow.
  • Buckhanon, Kalisha. Upstate.
  • Green, John. Looking for Alaska.
  • Lynch, Chris. Inexcusable.
  • Meyer, Stephanie. Twilight: A Novel.
  • Vaughan, Brian K. Runaways: Volume 1 HC. Illus. by Adrian Alphona.
  • Westerfeld, Scott. Peeps.
  • Wooding, Chris. Poison.
  • Zusak, Markus. I Am the Messenger.
