Book Reviews, Literary News, and Thoughts on Life
School Library Journal’s Jonathan Hunt offers some of his picks for potential Printz award winners.
I’ve only read one of the books he’s listed — Franny Billingsley’s Chime ( and if reading that four times in the past three months isn’t any indication of how much I loved it, I don’t know what is), but I’ve heard excellent things about Blink & Caution by Tim Wynne- Jones and Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke & Bone sounds quite good (it will be released later in September). I guess I’ve got some reading to do.
Have you read any young adult books published this year that you think are worthy of this prize?
