I was reading Kate Culkin’s PWCW profile of the delightful Aya (Drawn & Quarterly), and I came to a screeching halt when I read this:
“The ALA has nominated the book as one of its 2008 Great Graphic Novels for Teens.”
What?! There’s a new round of nominations?! Why wasn’t I informed?! To the search engine!
Ahhhh, Young Adult Library Services Association… it’s been too long.
Anyway, it’s a nice first round of nominees with some personal favorites (After School Nightmare, Emma, Goong) and some books I’m looking forward to reading (The Plain Janes, The Tiny Tyrant).
