National Book Award 2015 -- Young People's Literature

The National Book Foundation's mission is to celebrate the best of American literature, to expand its audience, and to enhance the cultural value of good writing in America.  The Foundation established the National Book Award in 1950.  There are four Award categories -- Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, and Young People's Literature.  This year's Young People's Literature Award was presented to Neal Shusterman for Challenger Deep, a novel about a mentally ill teenager who has dark fantasies about traveling to the deepest point on earth, which was inspired by Mr. Shusterman’s son.

Perfect Pair #16

This month's pair comes with a picture book bonus.  That way young people of all ages can learn more about this historic time period.

  • A Night Divided by Jennifer A. Nielsen (2015)
    J  NIE  NEW BOOK / J  NIE  AB (also available as downloadable audiobook on Hoopla)
    When the Berlin Wall went up, Gerta, her mother, and her brother Fritz are trapped on the eastern side where they were living, while her father, and her other brother Dominic are in the West--four years later, now twelve, Gerta sees her father on a viewing platform on the western side and realizes he wants her to risk her life trying to tunnel to freedom.
  • The Berlin Wall by Christine Zuchora-Walske (2014)
    J  943.087  ZUC

    Discusses why the Berlin Wall was built, what life was like in a divided city, and why it was torn down, and explores the political context behind the wall.
  • Wall by Tom Clohosy Cole (2014)
    E  COL

    Follows a small boy and his family as they try to reunite with his father after the Berlin Wall is built.

I knew that title would get your attention.  The third book in The Naturals series by Jennifer Lynn Barnes proves that bad things come in threes.

All In
After a string of brutal murders in Las Vegas, Cassie Hobbes and the Naturals are called in to investigate. But even with the team's unique profiling talents, these murders seem baffling: unlike many serial killers, this one uses different methods every time. All of the victims were killed in public, yet the killer does not show up on any security feed. And each victim has a string of numbers tattooed on their wrist. Hidden in the numbers is a code-and the closer the Naturals come to unraveling the mystery, the more perilous the case becomes.

Don't miss the first two books in the series!
1. The Naturals
2. Killer Instinct

Another great new story from Jennifer Lynn Barnes!
The Fixer


You think the number 13 is unlucky?  I bet you'll change your mind when you Trick or Treat! at Hoover Public Library this Saturday, October 31, 2015.  We'll have 13 candy stations throughout the library.  Stop by in your costume anytime from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
