The official Printz winners have been announced! As you will see, we weren't too off the mark with our Mock Printz nominations...
The 2010 Michael L. Printz Winner:
Going Bovine by Libba Bray
The Honor books:
Charles and Emma: the Darwins' Leap of Faith by Deborah Heiligman
The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey
Punkzilla by Adam Rapp
Tales of a Madman Underground: a Historical Romance, 1973 by John Barnes
Oh, and you can read about the award and the books on YALSA's website.
I have to say, I am quite surprised that Going Bovine won the top honor. It was a fun, entertaining read but I honestly thought it could have been better edited. Still, I am pleased to have a Printz winner that I can easily give to teens.
