So today I discovered that VOYA (Voice of Youth Advocates) reviewed The Geek Girl’s Guide to Cheerleading. It’s a terrific review with a terrific pull quote:
This novel is contemporary, laugh-outloud funny, and positive.
I’m going to point you to the Barnes & Noble website for the rest, since 1) I’m not sure I have permission to reprint the review here, and 2) it contains some mild-ish plot spoilers. You’ve been warned.
In other bookish news, the 2009 Cybils awards are now taking nominations. Anyone may nominate a children’s, middle grade, or young adult book (fiction or nonfiction) published between Oct. 16, 2008 and midnight, Oct. 15th, 2009. I’ve already nominated Flygirl by Sherri L. Smith (review forthcoming, I promise). If you’ve read some kid lit this year that you feel passionate about, head on over and make a nomination.
