What’s Sally Reading?

A Contest for the New Year! YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) has an online literature blog, The Hub, and right now it has a fun contest you are invited to enter.  All you need to do is write a fabricated summary of a book title.  Choose from the list of titles and make up a plot that matches the title.  Submit your entry by January 20, 2012.  Go here for the titles and to enter the contest.  Good luck!  (And you may decide to look at The Hub regularly, it has book reviews, “Tweets of the Week,” interviews with authors, and more!) Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick is another amazing book in the vein of The Invention of Hugo Cabret.  He tells the stories of two people in alternating sections: one is Rose, a girl who is deaf living in 1927 and her story is told completely in illustration.  The other story is told in text about Ben, a boy in 1977 who loses his hearing after being struck by lightning. (The Nebraska Library Commission receives free copies of children’s and young adult books for review from a number of publishers.  After review, the books are distributed free, via the Regional Library Systems, to Nebraska school and public libraries.)
