The nominees for the ABA Indies Choice Book Awards have been announced. The Indies Choice Book Awards "reflect the spirit of independent bookstores and the IndieBound movement."
The nominees in the Young Adult category are:
Graceling, by Kristin Cashore (HMH)
The Graveyard Book, by Neil Gaiman (HarperCollins)
Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins (Scholastic)
Little Brother, by Cory Doctorow (Tor)
My Most Excellent Year, by Steve Kluger (Dial)
Savvy, by Ingrid Law (Dial)
Hmmm. I'm starting to see a pattern here. Most of these are the same books that I keep seeing everywhere else. I'm also thrilled to see fantasy and science fiction making such a great showing in the major awards this year!
Find these books in your local independent bookstore.
Thanks to Publishers Lunch for the information.
