2017 National Book Awards for Young People’s Literature

13 Sep

The 2017 National Book Awards Longlist for Young People’s Literature was announced yesterday.  I’ve read four already. I have a few on hold, one ARC, and there are a few that my library doesn’t have yet. And the first three weren’t even on my radar.

MY TBR pile just got longer.

      I have read the last 4. If you haven’t read “The Hate U Give” you should, just because it is getting so much buzz. “America Street” treats similar themes, but is very different. Clayton Byrd is for grades 4-6. Orphan Islan is definitely middle grade.
