Black Juice is a Printz Honor Book

"The Michael L. Printz Award is an award for a book that exemplifies literary excellence in young adult literature." It's awarded by the American Library Association, the same people who award the Newbery and Caldecott Medals for children's literature. John Green's Looking for Alaska is the winner of the Printz Award this year, and TWO Australian books have made the Honor Book list of four titles: Black Juice and Markus Zusak's I Am the Messenger.

Congratulations, Markus, and congratulations, me!

For details, see the ALA website
