From the Editor – July 2012

The YA book boom seems to be continuing with no sign of abating, and I continue to be in awe of the Horn Book editors and reviewers who patiently (okay, maybe not always patiently — see this one trend Katie and Elissa spotted) go through them to tell you about the best. Here is some more help, and it sounds like fun, too. On August 9th from 10:30 AM to 5:30 PM, School Library Journal will be presenting SummerTeen: A Celebration of Young Adult Books. Headlined by the evergreen YA writer Caroline B. Cooney, the conference will include discussions and recommendations of many YA subgenres including romance, graphic literature, and science-fiction. And do you want to know what’s really cool? You can ever attend from the beach. The whole thing is going to take place online and will be accessible, I’m told, even from a mobile phone. For more information visit the SummerTeen site, and I hope to “see” you “there” on August 9th.
