Rainbowheart Removed My So-Called Bollywood Life, which got pushed to 2017.


message 2: by Holly (new)

Holly Just want to point out that while The Secret of the Blue Glass is being published with an English translation for the first time in 2016, it was originally published in 1967 in Japan. I don't know if that makes it ineligible for this list?


message 3: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Awesome, thanks for the info. Didn't know that. I figure that the first English language edition is good enough. That's how I've seen it work on the other YA and middle grade lists. :)


message 4: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed Full Cicada Moon, which got an earlier 2015 publication date.


message 5: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed Weaving a Net is Better Than Praying for Fish, which got pushed to 2017.


message 6: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed Akata Warrior, which is now listed as 2017.


message 7: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed South by Southeast by Gail Shepherd, Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds, and Untitled by Matt de la Pena, release dates currently unknown.
