- 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.
- As for music, Fort Wilson Riot, which I blogged about here, has a new single available: For All the Little Things. Highly recommended.
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. :)
