The 2013 Rainbow Book List Unveiled

“The committee members evaluated over 150 books published between July 2011 and December 2012, aimed at youth, birth through 18. Forty-nine books from 31 publishers were selected for the 2013 Rainbow list. Small, independent, and large publishers as well as self-published authors drew the interest of the committee with genres ranging from science fiction to gritty short stories, realistic fiction to graphic novels, and even a picture book bending gender roles. While there is a vast array of young adult fiction titles, non-fiction for any age, including memoirs and history so vital to tying a culture together, is still sparse.”
