have you heard? I thank Edi, from Crazy Quilts for bringing the following to my attention: nominations for Best Fiction for Young Adult are now open. Have you read an amazing multicultural YA (age 12-18) published in the past 16 months? Here is your chance to nominate it and to give the book a chance to be known more widely. The Award is organized by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a branch of the American Library Association (ALA).
The first BFYA will be published in 2011.

Which begs the question: what is the best MC YA you’ve read this year?
