For many of us — including the large adult audience that now follows young-adult (YA) fiction — these books also make perfect vacation reads, which is why NPR Books is focusing this year’s annual summer readers’ poll on YA fiction. During the coming weeks, your votes will decide the titles that make our top-100 list of the best YA novels ever.
There seems to be an onslaught of amazing YA reads coming into the store right now. How can we possibly choose our top 5 for NPR? What will you choose?
