Friday Fill-Ins: Introduce New Teens to This Older Book – Now!
Yesterday, we talked about the Printz Honor Award Winner Stuck in Neutral by Terry Trueman. It won this honor in 2001, more than 10 years ago. And in my post I mentioned that this is one of the “classic” teen titles that we need to be re-introducing to our new teen patrons.
So here’s your chance, today’s Friday Fill-Ins is an opportunity for you to share a “classic” teen title that you think we need to make sure and re-introduce new teen readers to. You know the drill, fill in the blanks in the comments. Be sure to check out our “Why YA?” posts for some other classics that many authors and teen librarians have felt were worth sharing. And don’t forget, you can write your own Why YA? post and share it at TLT if you would like.
