Sunday Times Best Children's Books of the Year

The Sunday Times has their list of the Best Books for Children 2007 up.  The books are selections from Nicolette Jones, their reviewer.  Because the Times is British, you will find books not available in the U.S.  But some of her favorites will be very familiar.  Her list spans books for babies through those for teens.

Clueless About Mysteries for Teens

VOYA has released their 11th annual compilation of adult mysteries for teen readers, called Clueless.  The list ranges from mysteries that cross genres to historical mysteries to police procedurals.  VOYA is known for their understanding of older teens’ desire to read adult books.  Their reviews of adult books for teen audiences are always right on the mark and offer high school librarians and public librarians working with teens a great basis for collection development and book lists.
