NECBA Spring 2012 Top Titles

This list is our attempt to identify as many high-quality titles as possible from among the numerous releases of middle-grade and young-adult fiction between January and June of 2012. (We do another round-up of July-December titles.) The list was produced by soliciting reading copies from as many publishers as possible, sharing the contributed books among NECBA members, reading and reviewing and rating as many as possible. From these titles a Top Ten (or six, in this case) list has been selected as a service to our general bookstore colleagues who are less familiar with the genre. The full text will be available on the NECBA site,
