The Alex Awards

The ALA award lists for 2008 have just been posted. Of interest to YA librarians will be the Alex Awards 2008 list which gives ten adult books with specific teen appeal. I have read five of the titles from the 2007 list and enjoyed all of them:

Black Swan Green by Mitchell
The Book of Lost Things by Connolly
Eagle Blue by D'Orso
The Thirteenth Tale by Setterfield
Water for Elephants by Gruen

Must get busy with some new orders now!
