This Week in YA- November 22, 2008

Random things:
  • Congratulations to Judy Blundell who's book What I Saw and How I Lied won the National Book Award for young people's literature! We'd also like to again congratulate the other finalists, E. Lockhart, Laurie Halse Anderson, Tim Tharp, and Kathi Appelt.
  • In order to create excitement for the 10th and final Princess Diaries book, Forever Princess, Harper Collins has put up the entire first Princess Diaries book online for anyone to read.
  • Sadly, TTYL by Lauren Myracle has been removed in the Round Rock school district's middle school libraries by the Superintendent. Honestly, those on this team do not agree with this decision and feel it should be up to the parents to control what their students read and not the schools, but feel free to have your own opinion on the matter.

  • Trouble in My Way by Michelle Stimpson
  • Night World No. 2 by L.J. Smith
  • Eclipse: Book Twelve (Sweep) by Cate Tiernan
