Updated Young Adult Dystopia List

I hope everyone is enjoying a wonderful holiday season!

While I'm in end-of-year retrospective mode, here's my newly updated working list of young adult dystopian fiction since 1960.

If you have any recommendations or suggestions for me, I'd be most grateful! Thanks so much.

(Note: If you follow/bookmark this link, you'll always be directed to the most recent iteration of this list.)
