YA Book Reviews

Unshelved Book Club

This week's Unshelved Book Club features YA books about a high school senior with CP who falls for a boy with OCD, a flu vaccine that turns teens telepathic, a varsity quarterback competing with the coach's son, a school reporter investigating a football coach's murder, a pro gamer, a teen left behind on a space station, and a Roshomon-like story about a teenage girl. Plus there's a book about how networked teens use social media.

BEA Previews

Book Expo America is coming right up, and this week's sponsors want you to pay special attention to what they've got going on there:

And we'll be there too, creating an Unshelved comic strip live on stage at Friday at 10am in 1E14. We look forward to seeing you there!

Book Reviews

Unshelved Book Club

This week's Unshelved Book Club features books about a Homecoming Queen who finds out she's intersex, a history of cameras, The Far Side, designing with LEGOs, a cartoonist's youth in pre-WWII Japan, and disgusting creatures.

Kickstarter Epilogue

Yesterday our Kickstarter for The Best Book ended without our reaching our funding goal. If you are one of the 567 backers who pledged to our campaign, thank you! (Reminder: your credit card will not be charged.)

It’s clear that our theme of “let kids read what they want” has some very real appeal, especially to teachers and librarians. Over 10% of the nearly $20,000 we raised were outright donations, and we received many messages of support imploring us to find a way to make this book happen.

And so we are hard at work on next steps. As soon as we figure it out we’ll let you know. We are so grateful to everyone who pledged and helped spread the word.
