YA Roundup (2)
A few links to YA news and other posts from around the blogosphere that caught my eye this week:
- The Romance Writers of America named their RITA Award winners this weekend. Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles was declared the winner in the Young Adult category.
- Text Appeal: Great piece by Olga Nesi in SLJ on teaching kids to use appeal terms to describe why they liked a book.
- A great post on being a Teen Librarian by GreenBeanTeenQueen.
- Author Tamora Pierce’s response to Hannah Moskowitz’s (Invincible Summer) post on “The Boy Problem” in YA.
- I also discovered Tamora Pierce’s list of current Science Fiction for Teens. An awesome resource for someone like me who is not well-read in SF.
- Tween Lingo Dictionary from Tweenparent.com.
- Debbie Reese’s Top 10 books about Native people and places for a high school library.
