The nominees for various film, television, and music awards are usually announced by some notable celebrities before a huge crowd of reporters. Usually the awards are handed out by some up and coming young model or actress like the Golden Globes Girl.  Such events are handled a bit more modestly in the publishing world. The National Book Foundation’s National Book Award for Young People’s Literature nominees were announced earlier this month. Winners will be announced in a ceremony to be held on November 19 in New York.

Here are the nominated books in the Young People’s or Young Adult division:

Gail Giles, “Girls Like Us” (Candlewick Press)

Carl Hiaasen, “Skink — No Surrender” (Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers/Random House)

Kate Milford, “Greenglass House” (Clarion Books/Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)
