The National Book Award nominees have been announced.  This is the first year that ten-book long-lists for each panel will be released to the public in mid-September.  Here is the list for children and young adult titles.

Kathi Appelt, The True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp (Atheneum Books for Young Readers/Simon & Schuster)

Kate DiCamillo, Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures (Candlewick Press)

Lisa Graff, A Tangle of Knots (Philomel Books/Penguin Group USA)

Gene Luen Yang, Boxers & Saints (First Second/Macmillan)

The winners will be announced on 10/20/2013.  The last listing, Yang’s, actually consists of two books which is a little different.  NBA books tend to be titles that you could picture in the current headlines.   Which book has your vote?
