YALSA is calling on you to answer this question: If there was only one shelf of space available for YA materials, what titles should go on it?
YALSA is looking for a micro-core collection of YA titles to share with folks who only have a small space to work with, like book mobiles, classroom libraries, home libraries, recreation centers, doctor’s offices, school buses, etc. The goal of this project is NOT to compile a “best of all-time” list. The goal is to create a list of materials for 12 – 18 year olds that is balanced and represents some great YA authors across the popular teen genres. Ideally, the list would incorporate contemporary titles as well as timeless ones. Please add your suggestions.
(If I only got one shelf at my current library, I think I might fill it with Naruto….)
