YALSA's 2014 Best Fiction for Young Adults

Ahhhh! I am so excited to post the link to the 2014 BFYA list.  Countless hours of reading (and re-reading), notetaking and discussion went into the creation of this list (and not just on my part either; the 15 committee members read of these books - and one even had a baby in the midst of all the work!).

You can click the link above for the full list, but I've included our Top Ten here:
  • Berry, Julie. All the Truth That’s in Me. Penguin/Viking Juvenile, 2013.
  • Clark, Kristin Elizabeth. Freakboy. Macmillan/Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, 2013.
  • Federle, Tim. Better Nate Than Ever. Simon & Schuster/Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 2013.
  • McNeal, Tom. Far Far Away. Random House/Knopf Books for Young Readers, 2013.
  • Rowell, Rainbow. Eleanor & Park. Macmillan/St. Martin’s Griffin, 2013.
  • Sedgwick, Marcus. Midwinterblood. Macmillan/Roaring Brook Press, 2013.
  • Sepetys, Ruta. Out of the Easy. Penguin/Philomel, 2013.
  • Smith, Andrew. WingerIllustrated by Sam Bosma. Simon & Schuster/Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 2013.
  • Sullivan, Tara. Golden Boy. Penguin/Putnam Juvenile, 2013.
  • Wein, Elizabeth. Rose Under Fire. Disney-Hyperion, 2013.
Can I get a "What? What!?!"

P.S. I'll be posting more about BFYA and the other 2014 booklists and book awards shortly, so stay tuned!
