If you don’t already know, October 14 - 20, 2007 is Teen Read Week.
Among the celebrations, the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), the fastest-growing division of the American Library Association (ALA), is asking teen readers to vote for up to 3 favorites of 25 nominated titles. Here is the link:
Included in this prestigious list of nominees is our very own Simone Elkeles and her book, How to Ruin a Summer Vacation!
Among other accolades, School Library Journal has listed How to Ruin a Summer Vacation under its Remarkable Reads section, and YA Books Central called it “The best teen comedy/romance of the year!"
The Buzz Girls love How to Ruin a Summer Vacation and are so very proud of Simone!
And to keep up the celebration, I am going to give a copy of my book, Top Ten Uses for an Unworn Prom Dress, to a commenter who either tells me he/she read and loved How to Ruin a Summer Vacation, is going to buy it, or plans to vote for it!
And be sure to pass the YALSA link and information along to the teens in your life.
