YALSA Nonfiction Award

YALSA announced its Nonfiction Award Shortlist. I'm not a huge nonfiction reader, especially in YA. I do want to say, however, that a nonfiction book that has been EXTREMELY popular at my library this year is Ryan Smithson's Ghosts of War: The True Story of a 19-Year-Old GI. All of my copies are constantly checked out.

I'm sure my students will love this, but I'll want to read it. It's hard to find books about war that aren't filled with profanity. Understandable, but I've had students themselves complain about this.
