YA 2019 Year End Book Summary

* Mammoth by Jill Baguchinsky was published in 2018

2019 was a GREAT year for new Young Adult fiction.

 DPL welcomed debut authors such as Lillian Clark (The Immoral Code), Hafsah Faizal (We Hunt the Flame) and Maika Moulite (Dear Haiti, Love Alaine). 

And we bittersweetly shelved the final installments of several different adventurous and lovable series such as Melissa de la Cruz's Alex & Eliza Trilogy, Marissa Meyer's Renegades trilogy, Neal Shusterman's Arc of a Scythe series and Stephanie Garber's Caraval trilogy.

Of all the books published in 2019 there were 5 that stood out as YOUR favorites.

Ms. Mary's Monday Review

For fans of Max and Ruby, come check out Ruby's Tea Party!  Rosemary Wells wrote many books for children, but the Max and Ruby series may be the most popular.  You might want a dvd of Max and Ruby while you are here, or another one of her many books in our collection.  Ruby's Tea Party is an A. R. level 2.1, and you can earn half a point if you pass the test.
