Cindy: We learned today that Ness won The 2008 Booktrust Teenage Prize for The Knife of Never Letting Go. As luck would have it, I finished the book very early this morning. I don't know how Todd managed to stay awake on the run for weeks with no sleep, I was paying for my late reading night all day. I updated our earlier post to add my opinion to Lynn's. Check it out and tell us what you think of this one when you get to it. No post is too tardy!
The DNA testing has not been run, but we are certain we must be twins separated at birth. And like genetic twins, we know what each other is thinking at all times, but we don't always agree.
Our passion for teen lit is almost older than the genre itself! We are middle school librarians who have chaired both ALA's Best Books for Young Adults and the Michael L. Printz Award for YA Literature. (Lynn's on the left, Cindy on the right in the banner photo--and it is our combined ten Printz winner books from 2007 & 2008 between our heads!)
