This blog was created with the intent to informally muse and discuss books that are eligible/could be chosen for the Michael L. Printz award for excellence in young adult literature, along with other ALA Youth Media Awards at random.

We aim to post summaries, merits, and/or criticsms of titles on a regular basis. We will aim to post a couple of times a week, but with all that life entails, we won’t be strict.  If you’d like to contribute, we’d love to have you! Feel free to email Andrea at andrea.ingala (a) gmail.com.

We’re going to be using the hashtag #ctmockprintz for anything and everything that has to do with this project, so spread the love.
