Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "All public libraries, school libraries serving young adults, and academic libraries with education or young adult literature training programs need to buy this book, written to celebrate and promote the Young Adult Library Services Association awards. There are currently three YALSA awards: the Alex Award, given each year to the 10 best adult books appealing to teens; the Edwards Award, given each year to an author for lifetime achievement in young adult literature; and the Printz Award, given each year to a book representing the best in young adult literature. In addition to the expected background information and annotated lists of award winners, the book provides guidance on marketing award-winning books to teens and includes some of the acceptance speeches for the Printz and Edwards Awards.--Crosser, Cynthia Copyright 2008 Booklist"
