Some of you might know I'm a teen services librarian in a small suburb of Boston, so YA is my scene. And I've been super excited about one day coming up in particular.
Groundhog Day 2015. Not because of Punxsutawney Phil, but because it's the day the Youth Media Awards will be announced.
What are the Youth Media Awards, or YMAs? You might know them better by their individual names: the Newbery, the Caldecott, the Printz, the Morris, plus a whole slew of others that honor stories and authors of books for young people.
I have no idea who will take this year's prizes, though we do have a short list for the Morris Award and the Nonfiction for Young Adults award.
My only prediction is the The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone by Adele Griffin will win some kind of recognition, but that's all I got. I can hardly wait!
Do you have any predictions?
