2009 ALA Popular Paperbacks for Young Adults

The list of 93 titles, drawn from 177 official nominations, is presented annually at the ALA Midwinter Meeting. This year’s PPYA committee produced four lists of titles arranged by the following topics:

Death and Dying: Death can be an adventure, but not everyone lives to tell about it.
Fame and Fortune: Stardom! Wealth! Notoriety! Read all about teens aspiring to make it big.
Journey > Destination: Life is an open road when the journey is greater than the destination.
Spies and Intrigue: Political intrigue, daring deeds, great escapes, and more in this thrilling list of fiction and nonfiction about those who operate within the world of shadow.
