Locus YA Award

As a fairly new award, the Locus Award for young adult fiction immediately caught my interest. Not only are there two Neil Gaiman titles on this list but also three by Terry Pratchett. That’s enough to ge me interested. I listed all the nominees, with every year’s winner being the first listed (and indicated by the *). Bold print means I’ve read the book, and if there is a link, it will lead you to my review.
