A group of 21 authors have teamed up together to create The Contemps, a site that celebrates contemporary YA fiction. In their own words...
"We're 21 authors putting real life in the spotlight, keeping readers up to date on the latest in YA contemporary fiction by blogging, tweeting, (over) sharing our own teenage experiences, and occasionally meeting up in real life.
Our goal is to help teens, booksellers, and librarians connect with and celebrate books that feature true-to-life settings, characters, and situations, and to let publishers know about the ongoing demand for contemporary stories."
It's a fantastic site, that's also holding a pretty cool challenge; read 18 of the 21 novels in a year for a chance to win all 21 of their novels! Check them out, and follow them on Twitter, @YAcontemps!
