More exciting awards news from Dundurn!

The fast-paced, YA novel Old Man, by author David A. Poulsen, has been nominated as a 2014 Popular Paperback Young Adults (PPYA), by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) of the American Library Association. His book falls under the "Conflicted Life During Wartime" category.

This is not an award in the traditional sense; rather, it is a list of books, comprised annually, intended to encourage young adults to read for pleasure by presenting lists of popular and topical titles that are widely available in paperback and represent a broad variety of accessible themes and genres.

The final list of titles will be compiled and released in early January 2014.
