2008 Nominations
Young Adult Fiction

You’ll find no dragons or magic, robots or vampires here. Just real
people, in the real world, in real situations. In a good YA novel teens
will find themselves and discover their world. A great YA novel will do
both of those while respecting and appealing to its audience.

We are
looking for a handful of the greatest teen novels of 2008. Historical,
humorous, or contemporary, they must have literary merit AND a lasting effect on their readers; something teens will press into their friends’
hands with fervor in their eyes and say, "You HAVE to read this book."
