National Book Award Finalists
THIS JUST IN! The winner was announced on November 19!
The National Book Foundation announced the finalists for the National Book Award. You can see all the finalists on their Web page, but I confess, I'm most interested in the Young People's Literature category:
Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson (Simon & Schuster)
The Underneath by Kathi Appelt (Atheneum)
What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell (Scholastic)
The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart (Hyperion)
The Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp (Alfred A.Knopf)
The winner will be announced on November 19.
