The Washington State Young Adult Review Group (WSYARG), an organization composed of librarians and other professionals who work to promote books and other materials appropriate for teenagers, has nominated the first volume of Death Note for its 2008 Evergreen Young Adult Book Award. The Evergreen Young Adult Book Award seeks to give teenage readers a voice in highlighting outstanding literature aimed at their age group. Any Washington student attending grades 7 to 12 can vote on the final award winner. Ballots are available at various school and local libraries, and will also be placed on the WSYARG website.
The Evergreen Award has been presented since 1991. It is intended to assist teachers in selecting books for junior-high- and high-school students to read in addition to class assignments.
