the new list

I wanted to make some revisions to the list of books I require for my YA class this coming semester. So, I went out to Twitter and Facebook and asked for suggestions. Do not do this unless you are serious about getting advice. So, here is the new list for those of you who might be interested. I do change out titles regularly with a few exceptions. Partly that is to add fresh meat and keep me up to date as well as the students, partly it is to ensure that assignments do not become stale. And mostly, it is because there are so many terrific books out there that I want to be sure get some love and attention.

So comment here is there is something you would add. I will tell you the ones that remain are the following: ABSOLUTELY TRUE DIARY OF A PART-TIME INDIAN, THE CHOCOLATE WAR, ATHLETIC SHORTS, IT'S PERFECTLY NORMAL, MONSTER, FIRST PART LAST, ANNIE ON MY MIND, NO MORE DEAD DOGS, LOOKING FOR ALASKA, and AMERICAN BORN CHINESE. I might change to a different Crutcher book and add a Gallo story collection, I might change SPEAK and add WINTERGIRLS (though I still want to be CERTAIN the students know SPEAK, too).

What is new this time? These are the new titles: GOING BOVINE, CHARLES AND EMMA, THE ARRIVAL, HEREVILLE, ALABAMA MOON, SURRENDER TREE, LEVIATHAN, HUNGER GAMES, KNIFE OF NEVER LETTING GO and STRANGE CASE OF ORIGAMI YODA.


And here is the whole list.
