The Quill Award Nominees were announced at Book Expo, and I've just now looked for the nominee list. This is noteworthy to me mostly because it was the populist nature of these awards that inspired the Cybils. Even so, I've read and reviewed 4 of the 5 titles nominated in the Young Adult/Teen Category.
The Green Glass Sea by Ellen Klages
Despite the fact that The Green Glass Sea is the only one I haven't read, and despite the fact that it won the 2007 Scott O'Dell Award... I don't know that I'll read it. All evidence says that it's a children's book, rather than teen. And what's Titan's Curse doing in the children's section? Not that the younger one's can't read it, but...whatever. I'm not spending anymore brain cells on this award.
(oh, and I'm rooting for Life As We Knew It. You know, if you cared. ABC & Sold have already gotten love, and if you follow my link to Incantation, you'll know how I felt about that one...Plus, if LAWKI wins, there's a bigger chance that the sequels Pfeffer want to write - sequels I desperately want - will actually happen. You know, in addition to the dead & the gone...which is due out May 1, 2008, and which I really, really, really want.)
