As of May 1, 2003, eighty-five books have been nominated for Best Books
for
Young Adults. Books will be discussed at the ALA Annual Meeting in
Toronto
this June. New nominations are posted on the first of each month
throughout
the year. Nominations from the field are encouraged. Please visit the
YALSA
Best Books website for details, including the policies and procedures.
Books
must be published between Sept. 1, 2002 and Dec. 31, 2003 to be
eligible for
this year's BBYA, although field nominations may only come from titles
published in 2003. If you or your teens would like to comment about any
of
the nominated titles, please send your comments to one of us and they
will
be shared with the BBYA committee.
