If you haven't heard... but we're all book nerds here, so you probably have... the Printz winner is:
Description from the ALA website: "In Ship Breaker, near a drowned New Orleans ravaged by hurricanes and global warming, Nailer and his young crew eke out a meager existence by scavenging materials on the ship-littered coast."
The Honor books include Stolen, Please Ignore Vera Dietz, Revolver and Nothing.
(Descriptions and Covers below)
Of these I have only read Stolen, which was fantastic.
Have you read any of these titles?
If yes, what did you think?
Who would you give the Printz award to?
Stolen by Lucy Christopher "The rugged Australian outback becomes Gemma’s prison after she is drugged and abducted by a handsome, obsessed stranger in a first novel filled with searing imagery and archetypal characters."
Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King. "Vera Dietz wants to be ignored, but the ghost of her ex-best friend won’t leave her alone in this dark comedy that examines relationships, identity, grief and flowcharts."
Revolver written by Marcus Sedgwick "In Sedgwick’s grim, chilling story set in the Arctic Circle, Sig finds his father’s frozen corpse as human predator Wolff arrives seeking retribution and a hidden Gold Rush treasure."
Nothing written by Janne Teller "Pierre Anthon’s nihilism causes his classmates to begin a search for life’s meaning in this bold, unsettling parable translated from Danish."
