The Young Adults’ Choices project began in 1986, funded by a special grant given to the International Literacy Association, and was supervised by the Association’s Literature for Young Adults Committee. The goals of the project are to encourage young people to read; to make teens, educators, librarians and media specialists, and parents and families aware of new literature for young adults; and to provide middle and secondary school students with an opportunity to voice their opinions about books being written for them and in whose pages they can find characters and experiences to which they can relate. The books included on this reading list reflect themes, topics, and stories young adults value.
