33 New #LoveOzYA Book Gifts for Teens

Home » 33 New #LoveOzYA Book Gifts for Teens

Joe Visser, aka Book Boy, is one of my favourite young book bloggers, and is also the only teen member of the LoveOzYA committee, a group of volunteers who work together to help promote the wonderful array of books created by YA authors in Australia.  You can find out more about the LoveOzYA  committee and its work here.

To help you find the right book for the teen reader in your life, the committee, made up of Joe, Stacey Malacari (Chair), Kevin Lee, Rhianna Patrick and Tori D’Cruz, has created a list of recent, cracking #LoveOzYA reads. There’s something here for everyone!
