Link Du Jour: National Book Award Longlist Announced!

The 10 title longlist for the Young People’s Literature category of the National Book Awards has been announced, and it’s a varied assortment of Newbery contender-ish middle grade (The Real Boy, A Tangle of Knots), YA (Two Boys Kissing), and (alright!) a graphic novel (Boxers & Saints), among others.

As I mentioned last week, it’s the first time they’re doing the longlist before the finalists are named on October 16.
