oliviasbooks How come there are 100 titles already? The list is fixed, because it represents the ALA choice, isn't it?

Unfortunately, I don't know of any way to fix the list at the 90 ALA titles, but I did delete the ones that don't belong.


message 3: by Laura (new)

Laura I deleted all the books not on the ALA list.

Derya I think, Shiver is just OK, but it does not deserve to be voted by 59 people -- that set it nearly on top of the list.

message 9: by Heather (new)

Heather I'm surprised "Where she Went" by Gayle Forman isn't on the list.


message 10: by Sophie (new)

Sophie Where She Went was published in 2011.
