This will only be some help, Robyn, but might make it easier for
someone else to get you the list you're looking for. I've been
reading through the archives for a while, and found a long thread
about YA recommendations - mostly in June 2002
What's odd is that I found my remembered offer to repost a list I'd
got together in 1999, for the fun of comparing with the list of
authors collected from the thread Melissa offered to post, but could
find neither of our lists. Even by moving onto July (and August, for
my own posts.)
If you've a bit of time you can find a lot of good recs in the
discussion from the time, though it's a slower way to get what you
want. Unfortunately we'd a major computer crash in 2003 so I can't
check my own in/out-boxes from then.
