In honor of Support YA Literature Day, I'm hosting the Sage Ceremony, my own unofficial YA-themed awards ceremony! The 3rd category is...
For showing us the way out of the Labyrinth
2. 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher
For creating a story that completely enraptured us and for bringing light to an important issue
3. Going Bovine by Libba Bray (not sure if this counts as realistic fiction, but I'm including it anyway)
For being one of the trippiest, most amusing, best books I've ever read.
4. Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
For being a beautifully written book about a tougher than tough topic.
5. Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway
For being supremely funny, touching, and real with kickbutt characters.
Honorary Mentions: Cindy Ella by Robin Palmer, Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson
