Whoo-hoo! It's early yet, but the first set of YALSA nominations for Best Fiction are already up. I've got to admit, I haven't read or even glanced at a single one of 'em, although I do see some familiar names amongst the list of authors: David Almond, Gary Paulsen. Lots of folks I've never heard of. I can attest that the buzz for Rachel Ward's Numbers is already quite something.
