One Response to "Best YA Books for 2008"
June 10, 2008 at 05:49 PM
I was excited to see YALSA recognize Sherman Alexie, a wonderfull talented writer. I've been a fan of his work for a long time, and I'm glad to see his work being recognized in YA circles as well. YA lit has taken such an interesting turn since when I was a kid. It seems like authors who are considered to be writers for adults - such as Joyce Carol Oates - are no longer afraid to cross the boundary between YA lit and adult literary fiction. I think the contributions of writers like Alexie and Oates have given YA lit a more mature voice - something that the genre needed.
