YALSA's Best of the Best

YALSA's Best of the Best: recommended reading for teens

*YALSA has launched the new Teen Book Finder Database, which is a one-stop shop for finding selected lists and award winners. Users can 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.

Find the best books and media for youth each year through YALSA's Best of the Best! We'll also offer downloadable spine labels, customizable bookmarks, and more tools for librarians to use to promote the very best in teen books to teens in their communities. To see a full listing of recommended reading, visit www.ala.org/yalsa/booklists and be sure to check out our free Teen Book Finder app and database.
