|PRINTZ GOLD SEAL!!!|
|so shiny and pretty|
So I know I read this one late in the game, and that I just reviewed it yesterday, but I think it's strong. It was incredibly engaging. I also think it has a good chance at the Excellence in Nonfiction Award. Request it here.
I talked about this one in my gushing adoration-of-Australian YA post (y'all, I SERIOUSLY LOVE AUSTRALIAN YA). Lanagan has quite a history with the Printz Honor, and this is the book of hers that I've enjoyed the most. It's lyrical and literary and just disturbing enough to make you really think. I think it's got a good shot at an honor. Request it here.
I talked about this one yesterday, too. I may not have connected with Astrid Jones as much as I did with Vera Dietz, but that doesn't take away from the fact that it's a solid contender and that the writing is splendid. Maybe A.S. King will have another Printz Honor under her belt soon. Request it here.
