This time of year is awards time for the book industry. And YALSA has come out with their "Quick Picks" for 2015 aimed at the reluctant reader. As they state, "The Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers list identifies titles aimed at encouraging reading among teens who dislike to read for any reason." The list is extensive...some 67 titles and a series. The link below will take you their "Top Ten."
I always peruse this list when working on book orders. I need to look at which ones are suitable for the Middle School Level; then I do my best to get as many of these books for Strong's LMC so that we can turn those who are reluctant into eager readers! =D
