Here’s the short list

17 Oct


The short list for the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature have been announced. This award is unlike many other awards because the publishers submit titles to the committee, along with $125 per title. If they become a finalist, the must also contribute $1000 towards a promotional campaign. Here are the Finalists, along with the publishers who are out a thousand bucks.

The True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp Kathi Appelt (Atheneum Books for Young Readers/Simon & Schuster)

I love this book and have it on my list for my teacher book club, if we ever get it going.

The Thing About Luck – Cynthia Kadahota (Atheneum Books for Young Readers/Simon & Schuster)

I struggled with this one. It has a very slow start, but gets better of you persevere.

Far Far Away – Tom McNeal (Alfred A. Knopf/Random House)

Too scary for me, but well written and a cool story. I am a weenie & couldn’t read it before bed.
