In the Margins which falls under the Library Services for Youth in Custody, is a book list for teens that showcases self-published and small press titles by and about people in poverty or living in the margins. Books from large publishers are also considered as long as they fit into the focus of the list.
Here are the 2014 nominees to date. New titles will still be considered and teen feedback will be part of creating the final list.
Caged Warrior by Alan Lawrence Sitomer
The Griots of Oakland by Angela Beth Zusman
Left for Dead by Ebony Canion
The Lure by Lynne Ewing
Rabbit Ears by Maggie De Vries
When I Was the Greatest by Jason Reynolds
