YALSA – 2012 Great Graphic Novels for Teens

Each year a committee of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), recommends books for those ages 12-18 that meet the criteria of both good quality literature and appealing reading for teens. This year (2012), the list of 56 titles, drawn from 78 official nominations, is presented at the ALA Midwinter Meeting. “This year’s list reflects the wide range of graphic novels available for teens,” said Chairwoman Joy Kim. “From kung-fu epics to ghost stories to memoirs, this year’s selected titles represent many genres, styles, and sequential art traditions. We hope librarians, teens, and graphic novel aficionados will find this to be a valuable resource.”
