The article reports that Annick Press, a publisher in Toronto, Ontario, had recently targeted the young adult/teen market due to high competition in the picture books market. In 2005, the publishers' Y/A top selling books were "Chanda's Secrets," by Allan Stratton and "Mimus," by Lilli Thal. The company is optimistic for its fall book "The Little Black Book for Girlz," which is about healthy sexuality among women.
