The Young Adults' Choices Reading List is an annual list put out by the International Reading Association. Their purpose is to generate a "list of new books that will encourage adolescents to read."1 Published since1987, the list is generated late in the year for that year (2011 is the most recent). Publishers can nominate books, and student teams at middle and secondary schools select the list of 30 books from the nominees. The list is annotated to help readers better understand the choices.
