2016 Printz Pizza Party

What we’re reading & discussing:

 

WINNER:

Bone Gap by Laura Ruby

Published by Balzer + Bray, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers

Told from alternating viewpoints, Bone Gap perfectly melds elements of fairy tales, myths, gothic romance, and magic realism into the story of Finn, who lives in a town with gaps in the very fabric of time and place.

 

HONORS:

The Ghosts of Heaven by Marcus Sedgwick

Published by Roaring Brook Press, an imprint of Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group

Sedgwick connects four seemingly disparate stories, each of which feature a character haunted by the ever-present shape of a spiral. Spanning time, space, and genre, each story raises powerful questions about human nature.

 

Out of Darkness by Ashley Hope Pérez

Published by Carolrhoda Lab™, an imprint of Carolrhoda Books, a division of Lerner publishing Group

In 1937 East Texas, Mexican American Naomi and African American Wash begin a bittersweet romance. Perez’s beautifully crafted novel is a moving portrayal of both powerful love and a period marked by oppressive, destructive racism.
