I’m so honored that The Girl Who Fell made it onto this beautiful library list!
From the YALSA website: “The list of 71 titles and 2 series, drawn from 151 nominations, is presented annually at the ALA Midwinter Meeting. The Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers list identifies titles aimed at encouraging reading among teens who dislike to read for any reason.

‘Our committee is very happy with the titles we selected this year,’ said Chair, Dorcas Wong. ‘Reluctant readers will be treated to a diverse selection of intriguing nonfiction, wild adventures, twisty mysteries, and thoughtful realistic stories. We look forward to sharing these books with teens.’
