July 2017 #YearofYA : Unique Formats

We cannot deny how much our readers — from elementary through high school — are drawn to graphic novels. Rep John Lewis’s memoir, March, won ALL the awards this year. Raina is recognized on a first name basis (like Madonna. Or Oprah.) And while parents might grumble over how fast their kids read through them, the power of this unique format cannot be denied.

But it’s not just graphic novels that hook readers. All kinds of unique formats are out there baiting young readers to explore. Kwame’s poetry. Greg’s (OK, Jeff Kinney) Diary. Ransom’s creepy photographs. Gene Luen Yang’s graphics. Push your fictional boundaries in July & find some books that have unique formats… #YearofYA is about CHOICE so “unique format” can be defined how it works for you! Below are some books lists that include graphic novels, novels in verse, epistolary and more.
