best fiction for young adults 2018
Saturday, August 05, 2017

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Librarians across the country are gathering input from teen readers about their favorite fiction titles, and Charleston voices need to be heard! 

The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) presents an annual selection of recommended fiction titles published for readers age 12 to 18 in the past 16 months. Members of the Best Fiction for Young Adults Committee (BFYA) compile these recommendations in order to provide librarians and library workers with a resource to use for collection development and reader’s advisory purposes. 

Nominated books are currently on display in the Main Library Teen Lounge with a special label affixed to their book jackets.

Please note that these books may be placed on hold and picked up at any CCPL branch.

Readers are encouraged to submit their feedback about featured titles through a simple online form. To cast a vote, teens must give books a 1-5 star review. There also is an option to submit a detailed review. Voting will continue through December 2017, and the Best Fiction finalists and “Top Ten” lists will be released in early 2018.
