NPR’s Best Young Adult Books

All five titles on NPR’s year-end shortlist are on other YA “best books” lists, which we have handily rounded up in our Bests — All Children’s Titles — Spreadsheet.

Take, for example, Laini Taylor’s Lips Touch, a collection of two novelettes and a novella about kissing, populated by goblins and demons. It was a National Book Award finalist, and also appeared on the PW kids list.  World Cat says 416 libraries have it. Those we checked have 20 or fewer copies, with comparable holds.
