Spanning the last years of primary and all the way up to early adulthood, young adult fiction has an appeal that knows few bounds. Back by popular demand, this is the third in our series of YA book chats. Join Nisa and Antonia as they discuss the following titles:
The Inky Awards recognise high-quality young adult literature, with the longlist and shortlist selected by young adults, and the winners voted for online by the teen readers of Inside a Dog. There are two awards: the Gold Inky Award for an Australian book, and the Silver Inky Award for an international book. The library has all titles in the longlist -why not reserve a copy now?
