Great Graphic Novels

*Beginning in February 2017, YALSA will launch the new Teen Book Finder Database, which will be a one-stop shop for finding selected lists and award winners.  Users will be able to search this free resource by award, list name, year, author, genre and more, as well as print customizable lists.  This new resource will replace the individual award and list web pages currently on YALSA’s site that are not searchable and that are organized only by year.


Great Graphic Novels for Teens is a list of recommended graphic novels and illustrated nonfiction for those ages 12-18, prepared yearly by YALSA.
