Here is something I found out about a while back and have been holding on to so I could post it here. (What an elegant lead in, huh?)
The Alex Awards are given for the 10 best adult books for young adults. That doesn't mean they were written for young adults. They are adult books that either the award committee members think young adults would like or would be suitable for them or improving in some way or something. I can't tell from the description.
I like the idea, though. And I like going through the list to see what I've read.
I have this fear that I've written about this award before, but I couldn't find a reference to it when I did a search. And, let's face it, who's going to look?
