YALSA - 2012 Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Readers

The Quick Picks list, presented annually at the ALA Midwinter Meeting suggests books that teens, ages 12-18, will pick up on their own and read for pleasure. It is geared to the teenager who, for whatever reason, does not like to read. The 2012 list features 117 titles. "There is something here for everyone, from our struggling readers in middle school to the overscheduled young adult looking for a really good read," said Chairwoman Heather Gruenthal. "I am really proud of this year's committee for their work with teen groups from across the country and coming up with such a diverse list. Only on Quick Picks can you find zombies, superheroes, gangs, ghost hunters, murderers, monsters, goth girls, baby animals, gross facts, and sports heroes all in the same place.”
