Morris Award for New YA Authors

The American Library Association has a new award, the Morris Award, that will honor the best work of teen fiction by a first time author. The 2009 shortlist includes two of my favorite books of 2008, Graceling by Kristin Cashore and Madapple by Christina Meldrum, along with three other books that sound great! The winner from this shortlist will be announced at the end of January.

And if you like to read award winners, don’t forget the Printz Award will also be announced in just a few weeks. While you wait for the results try one of the Teens’ Top Ten winners or one of the National Book Award winners.
