By Shannon OConnor on Thursday, Apr 19, 2012
For the past few months, the 2012 New Voices Committee has been hard at work, reading more than 80 titles by first-time authors. Their task? To pick the top debuts published between January 1 and June 30, 2012 in two categories: Ages 8 - 12 and Teen. The results are in, and the committee’s top six picks in each category are featured on a flier arriving at ABA member stores in the May Children’s White Box mailing.
