Are you looking for a way to support others in the field? Donating to the Friends of YALSA during Giving Tuesday is a great option! All of the money raised by the FOY is used to financially support member awards, grants, scholarships, and stipends.

She is the author of Devoted, Afterward, The Liars of Mariposa Island, and The Truth About Alice, the winner of the Children’s Choice Teen Debut Author Award. Her 2017 novel Moxie is being developed into a film by Amy Poehler for Netflix.
  • A set of signed books from author Brenden Kiely which include All American Boys (with Jason Reynolds), Tradition, The Last True Love Story, and The Gospel of Winter. His most recent book is The Other Talk: Reckoning with Our White Privilege.
