Award Winners: Printz

Yesterday was a big day for books! Pretty much every award given to Young Adult and Children's Literature was announced yesterday morning. You've probably read Caldecott and Newbery books for school, but did you know that there are also several categories about young adult books? One of these categories is called the Michael L. Printz Award. It honors literary excellence in young adult literature and has previously gone to these books you may recognize: Looking for Alaska by John Green, American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang, and Monster by Walter Dean Myers.

Here are this year's big winner and four honor books:

Going Bovine
Going Bovine
By Libba Bray


by Deborah Heiligman

The Monstrumologist
The Monstrumologist
by Rick Yancey

Have you read any of these? Are there any books you loved that didn't win?
