2014 Manitoba Young Readers' Choice Award Nominees

A new list of reading choices for Manitoba's young readers comes courtesy of the Manitoba Young Readers' Choice Awards (MYRCA) program which presents 15 to 18 Canadian novels written in English for the targeted young readers.  Those young people who have read or heard a minimum of 3 nominated titles vote for their favourite title in April.  The winning title and honour books are announced in May and celebrated at an awards ceremony in October.

This is the shortlist of nominated titles for the 2014 MYRCA.  Congratulations to the authors and publishers of these seventeen nominees for their inclusion on this comprehensive list.
