A bunch of books that aren't going to win the Printz...

but they are awesome and you should read them or at least buy them for your library.

Riker's High by Paul Volponi
The Unwritten Rule by Elizabeth Scott
The Six Rules of Maybe by Deb Caletti
Every Little Thing in the World by Nina de Gramont
The World as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Struts and Frets by Jon Skovron
Saving Maddie by Varian Johnson
It's Not Summer Without You by Jenny Han

Agreed. I just finished "The Unwritten Rule" by Scott, and had read "It's Not Summer Without You" by Jenny Han. Both were incredibly good and the voices were true to a teenage girl.

My teens also love "Struts and Frets" have not seen it on the shelf since it was purchased.

I, too, loved The Unwritten Rule, and you know, I wouldn't totally write it off for the Printz just yet. I thought the character development was outstanding.

I still need to read Saving Maddie :(
