Friday Finds: Fort Wilson Riot, National Book Awards issues, etc.

Now Available:

  • How to Save a Life by Sara Zarr is out as of this week.  It is an excellent book that made me cry.  This is a book not to be missed for readers of teen fiction.
In the news:
  • The National Book Award Finalists were announced last week, and mistakes were made that resulted in Lauren Myracle, author of Shine (which I loved) being asked to step aside from the competition.  A lot of people feel pretty strongly about this.  Whoever you feel mishandled the situation aside, I think the moral of this story is that Shine is a great book and more people should read it.  At least that’s what I got from it. :)
