As she did for 2007, Reba White Williams is soliciting nominees for this year’s best novel set in the South.

We in the kidlitosphere know that YA fiction can hold its own with fiction targeted toward adult readers, but organizers of competitions such as this one may not instinctively think to look in our direction. (Not just yet, anyway. We’re working on it.)

So, if you know of any YA authors whose 2008 titles would seem to qualify, why don’t you be sweet and kindly direct them Reba’s way?
