My Top Five Printz Books

My fabulous friend Abby (of Abby the Librarian fame) asked me what my Top 5 Printz books were, since I'm running for a spot on the 2013 Printz Committee (YALSA members-I'd love your vote!) It was a tough question to answer, but I narrowed my list down to five. Check out Abby's blog for the GreenBeanTeenQueen Top 5 Printz Books!
