We’ve moved the MCTBA page to Tumblr. You can still find information on the Milwaukee County Teen Book Award from 2010-2016 on this site. However, for nominees lists, reviews and more post-2016 visit us at http://mkecountyteenbookaward.tumblr.com/.
Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli!
Standing alongside Simon are this year’s honor books:
Nimona, by Noelle Stevenson; Goodbye Stranger by Rebecca Stead; and Cuckoo Song by Frances Hardinge. Cuckoo Song was also the winner of the teen vote!
Thank you to everyone who promoted, voted, and participated in MCTBA 2016. We’re reading what’s new in preparation of 2017 and will be back with what’s good, the top 15 nominees for the year, in December!
If you are looking for more books to read, keep your eyes here on the blog. We’ll be posting some of our close calls, or those books that we loved that we sadly left off or list. We’ll announce the winner sometime before April 1st!
Today we are reviewing An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. Check it out over on the 2016 Nominee Review page!
