Project 50 Pages

I dropped by the public library today and picked up six YA books that we are considering for our Mock Printz Workshop. With the demands of a new school year on me right now there is no way that I'll be able to read all six of these additional books plus the two I have sitting around home already before the selection committee meets at the end of the month. So, it is time to instigate Project 50 Pages. I commit to read 50 pages of the books then evaluate and grade them as to their worthiness to be selected for our Mock Printz list of books.

List of books:

  • This One Summer by Jillian and Mariko Tamaki
  • Starbird Murphy and the World Outside by Karen Finneyfrock
  • Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern
  • The True Tale of Monster Billy Dean Telt By Hisself by David Almond
  • The Vanishing Season by Jodi Lynn Anderson
  • A Time to Dance by Padma Venkatraman
  • She is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick*
  • The Here and Now by Ann Brashares
