|NPR's List of Best-Ever Teen Fiction|
The folks here at Things You Can Read are big NPR listeners, and we were delighted to discover the NPR feature on YA fiction unveiled on August 7, 2012 in Harriet Russell's NPR post. Interestingly enough, NPR conducted a poll of over 75,000 people. Voters cast their ballots for the BEST-Ever Teen Fiction. "It's almost a cliche at this point to say that teen fiction isn't just for teens anymore. Just last year, the Association of American Publishers ranked Children's/Young Adult books as the single fastest-growing publishing category," stated the NPR article.
I'm sure you are salivating by this time to know what the list looks like. It can be found at Best-Ever Teen Fiction, and if you are really curious to check out all 235 finalists, NPR provides the list, as well as a list of the top 100 in printable form, if you are a hard copy kind-a-person.
Let us here at The Things You Can Read know what you think of the article. We absolutely love to hear from our readership.
