From the Blogs

Check out this post over at Cynthia Leitich Smith's blog for the latest on Varian Johnson and Jo Whittemore.

Confessions of a Bibliovore read and reviewed a number of Flux books in her 48-hour Book Challenge, including Into the Wildewood, The Shape of Water, Jump the Cracks, Band Geek Love, and Love (and Other Uses for Duct Tape). I particularly love her comment about Anne Spollen's wonderful The Shape of Water : "I kept reading this novel not because I wanted to find out what happened, but because I couldn't pull myself out of Magda's surreal inner life." We've heard a lot this from readers (one teen reader wrote on that "You sort of can't stop thinking about the girl in this book").

Some really great stuff coming from the folks at Flux lately! Is Shape of Water in the running for any awards?
