Nation FTW

Hell yeah!

I read about this Twitter the other day and forget to mention it in me blog. Normally that would be a "meh" moment but this concerns Sir Terry Pratchett.

Nation won the 2008 LA Times award for Young Adult Literature!

I read it recently; that book was amazing. It will make you cry, it will make you think and it will make you laugh. You'd think that you would be quite a confused individual, with all that simultaneous crying and laughing, but nothing like that. You've a bit wiser and more thoughtful by the time you're done.

More books like this, I say! Books that made kids think.
