National Book Awards for YA Literature Announced

As promised, NPR announced the five finalists for the National Book Award which is scheduled to be announced on November 19th. They are (in no particular order):

Threatened by Eliot Schrefer

Revolution by Deborah Wiles

9780545106078_p0_v2_s600

Brown Girl Dreaming
9780399252518_p0_v2_s260x420-1

Noggin by Corey Whaley

9781442458727_p0_v4_s260x420

Port Chicago 50

8177959c-9c5b-45cc-8938-4f0d1234e095-460x276

I have yet to read Threatened and Noggin – wouldn’t you know they were the only two on the long list I hadn’t gotten to! I know what the next two books I’ll be reading are! The other three are stellar examples of what the world of young adult literature offers. I can’t possibly say which I like best because they are all outstanding. We’ll leave the announcement to the judges. I think they have a very tough job ahead of them!
