Week in Review: November 4

missprintweekreviewThis week on the blog you can check out:

Obviously there was a fair bit of bad news this week with the attack in lower Manhattan. I’m really glad that it wasn’t worse but am incredibly saddened that it happened at all.

On a personal level this week was pretty draining. I’m not sure I want to get into it here at least in part because I don’t want to get angry again but basically my mom did not get the best possible prognosis at the doctor this week. It’s nothing life threatening but it’s going to be harder and scarier than either of us expected or hoped.

I’ve been trying to read a lot of books in anticipation of the Mock Printz program my committee does at work. I’m feeling good about my preparation as we get ready to pick out shortlist titles. If you are at all interested in the Printz Award I’d also recommend checking out the Someday My Printz Will Come blog.

I’m still trying to figure out details but I think this year I am going to try to bring some of the Mock Printz stuff from work onto the blog so details to come!


Here’s my latest from Instagram:

“The Nowhere Girls are here. They are everywhere.” 📚 GIVEAWAY because some books are so good you have to share them. TO ENTER: 1. Follow @missprint_ on here. 2. Like this post. 3. Rage a friend or two in the comments. (US only. Ends 12:00pm EST on November 9.) 📚 Grace, Rosina, and Erin are used to being outsiders—nobodies. But as they get to know each other they realize they aren’t alone. Outraged by the lack of sympathy and subsequent fallout for Lucy Moynihan after she accuses three popular guys at school of gang rape, Grace encourages Rosina and Erin to help her try to get justice for Lucy and for so many other girls. 📚 It starts with just the three of them but soon the Nowhere Girls are everywhere because they are everygirl.
