Teen Title Talk: Sadie and The Astonishing Color of After

December 13, 2018

This week, Courtney and Erin dig into two Printz contenders, Sadie by Courtney Summers and The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan. They ponder what makes a book great and consider what Best-of-the-Year lists might do for a book and its author. They also dig into their teen lives with the questions "did you pull any pranks?" "What was your 'fashion' like?" and "Who was your favorite teacher and why?" Feel free to join the conversation by answering these same questions, ask us about library life or request a book recommendation at teentitletalk@gmail.com
