The Alex Awards

Do you ever feel like you've read pretty much everything in the young adult section? Or maybe you're looking for something different. Then you might want to take a look at the Alex Awards list.

According the American Library Association (ALA) the Alex Awards "are given to ten books written for adults that have special appeal to young adults, ages 12 through 18. The winning titles are selected from the previous year's publishing." 

These are books you might find on a schoo's suggested or required readings lists, but probably not.  Some of them are bestsellers that you've heard of, like My Sister's Keeper or Water for Elephants but others might be titles that are completely new to you.

Next time you're thinking that you just need something new, what not check out on these books.  For a full list of books and more information about the award, click here!
