At the midwinter meeting in Chicago the Popular Paperback’s for Young Adults committee was hard at work narrowing down the scope of each themed list. The Change Your World subcommittee lived up to their name and altered the range of their list significantly. In an effort to open up the list to the fantasy and sci fi genres, the subcommittee decided to change the description. The new description is: “You say you want a revolution? What are you willing to lose? What are you willing to do? The future starts now.” The Change committee is hoping that this new description will bring about more variety of nominated titles which currently include: Hoot, Pretties, An Inconvenient Truth, and Little Brother.

And remember, the future starts now.
