Body: 

YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) has launched its new Teen Book Finder, a free database and app that can access nearly 4,000 titles. The app is Android and iOS compatible and features: the ability to search for books by author, title, award/list year, genre, by award, and by book list; a "Find It!" button, powered by the OCLC WorldCat Search API, that will show users where to find the book in a nearby library; a "Favorites" button, to create an individualized booklist; and the ability to share books from the Teen Book Finder on Twitter and Facebook.
