Favorite of 2013 (and some stray thoughts)

This post by Joy Piedmont at Someday My Printz Will Come pretty much sums up why I adore Eleanor & Park.

Note 1: I don't necessarily think it'll win the Printz - my money's on Boxers & Saints - but an honor would be a well-deserved recognition.

Note 2: I also loved Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl.

Note 3: I loved the music threads in both Eleanor & Park and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, and would kill to read a novel that paid homage to late 80's and early 90's R&B / Rap / Hip-Hop in a similar way. If this book exists, please email me and let me know.
