The Cybils: 2006 YA Nominations

Books are good for you. Any member of Cybilized society knows that.

Nominations for the first-ever round of The Cybils book awards closed on November 20th, 2006. By the following week, category organizers posted the lists of nominees at the Cybils website. The nominating committees then had a little over a month to read and discuss the nominated titles, after which they whittled each list down to five very lucky finalists. The finalists will be announced on January 1st, 2007; the winners, February 2007.

I am on the Young Adult nominating committee along with Jackie, Mindy, Sara, and Tanita. Our category administrator, Jen, alphabetized the list of eighty nominated titles you'll see below. I will bold titles I've read, link to titles I've read and reviewed, and link to interviews I've conducted with authors.
