This week, Courtney and Erin dive into two great works of historical fiction, Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys and The Downstairs Girl by Stacey Lee, but before they do that they look back on a year of reading and ponder which titles they think could take the Michael L. Printz award. The Printz award is given by the ALA to a work of literary excellence in Young Adult Literature.

As always, we would love to hear from you. What books did you love this year? Which do you think could take the Printz? Let us know at teentitletalk@gmail.com
