2011 National Book Award-Young Peoples Lit

Since my last blog post was on Award books I thought it would be timely to note the winner of the 2011 National Book Award-Young People's Literature category is:

Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai

Read all about it at The National Book Association website. I think the book sounds fabulous.  Onto my TBR pile it goes!

  1. That does look wonderful! How are you finding Oscar Wao? I found it thoroughly engrossing, but also challenging in many regards. Helped that I knew enough Spanish to read it relatively seamlessly...
    Hope your school year's been splendid so far.


I look forward to your comments and interactions! Join in the conversation.
