2017 Books from Printz Winners

I’m feeling magnanimous today – why not throw a bone to the YA crowd? Is that even how you say it? Y.A.? Or is it pronounced like the word “yeah”? Do you put a “The” in front? “The Yeah”? I’m so confused on this YA thing.

Since we’ve covered Newbery, Caldecott, Geisel, Coretta Scott King, and Pura Belpre, it seems like the Printz should be next.

Below are all the books coming out in 2017 by past Michael L. Printz winner and honor recipients. This one was a bit tricky deciding what to include, because a good chunk of the book are not necessarily for a teen audience. When My Sister Started Kissing, Pip Bartlett’s Guide, Me and Marvin Gardens, Writing Radar, Harry Miller’s Run, The Amber Amulet, The Emperor’s Ostrich and Saturdays with Hitchcock are for younger audiences. All the Dirty Parts is for adults.

Did I miss one? Let’s hear it in the comments.

    Our public library “dumped” the term YA probably over 10 years ago, because this is more a library thing/term and the public totally doesn’t get what it is all. Teen covers it for us and our patrons.
