Someday My Printz Will Come
Inside Someday My Printz Will Come

Nonfiction! Finalists!

Probably you have all seen the shortlist for The YALSA Award for Excellence in Nonfiction already, but just in case:

Bomb
We’ve Got a Job
Moonbird
Titanic
Steve Jobs: The Man Who Thought Different

Of  the five finalists, we thought We’ve Got a Job skewed a bit young (but will be posting a nonfiction writeup from sometimes guest blogger Joy Piedmont soon covering this and Titanic) and didn’t even consider Steve Jobs. Oversight? Or one of those books that is excellent within the narrower confines of genre but doesn’t compare in the wider net of Printz-eligible titles?
