The Mock Printz Club had our first meeting in a month this past Friday, and there was a lot to catch up on. We added three new nominations: Because I Was a Girl (edited by Melissa de la Cruz), Bull by David Elliott, and Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart. Bull and Genuine Fraud have been out for a little while, but have only just started to catch the club’s interest, while the nominator said that Because I Was A Girl did what Here We Are: Feminism for the Real World (ed. Kelly Jensen) tried to do, but more eloquently.
Below are the nominations/recommendations written by our club members this week:
Genuine Fraud (nominated): “a fascinating story of crime, murder, and identity theft told backwards with a series of unexpected twists and turns.” – Lauren S.
Bull (nominated): “An awesome book about the Minotaur. Written in a poem format with very interesting characters, especially Poseidon.” – Hasana M.
Dear Martin (nominated): “I thought this book was really good at showing microagression that kids my age see today. Artistic, tragic, beautiful.” – Gracie S.
A List of Cages (recommended): “Two former foster brothers reunite in high school after Julian was taken in by his uncle. Touching and heartfelt.” – Grace K.
