näytä lisää division (Young Adult Library Services Association). It is for "fiction titles published for young adults in the past 16 months that are recommended reading for ages 12 to 18.

In addition there is a "Best of the Best" list of the top 10 titles, made available since 1997.


The list has been published since 1930 when it was founded as "Best Books for Young People". It has undergone several changes of focus and names over the years, including the "Book Selection Committee" (1954), the "Committee for the Selection of Significant Adult Books for Young People" (1963). It became the "Best Books for Young Adults Committee" (BBYA) in 1966 and then "Best Fiction for Young Adults" in 2010.


Before 1973, only "adult books" (as marketed) were eligible. Books marketed for "young adults" have been considered since then and now constitute a majority of the selections. Meanwhile, the marketing category has changed to include more books oriented to older teens. näytä vähemmän

From the American Library Association's young adult library services. The books, recommended for those ages 12-18, meet the criteria of both good quality literature and appealing reading for teens. The annual lists comprises a wide range of genres and styles, including contemporary realistic fiction that reflects the diversity of the teen experience, nonfiction that brings to teens an awareness of the world they live in and its history, and fantastical stories told in both narrative and graphic formats.

The year listing skipped 1989 in the ALA Best Books for Young Adults Second Edition publication, although some authors such as Gary Paulsen listed as having a 1990 Best Books in the publication will credit the same book as a 1989 Best Books on various websites. There appears to be no official explanation for this.

The list was replaced by YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults starting in 2011.
