Teen Read Week was October 16th through the 22nd, but here at The Hub, we’re celebrating all month long with 31 Days of Authors. On each day in October, we’ll bring you exclusive author interviews and profiles plus reflections on what YALSA-recognized books have meant to us. Today we feature PART TWO of a two-part post about Becca Fitzpatrick, whose book Crescendo is #3 on this year’s Teens’ Top Ten list. (Read part one)
Let me start by congratulating you on being nominated by teens for your place on the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) Teens’ Top Ten winners list for 2011! How does it feel to be picked with authors like Cassandra Clare, James Patterson, Ally Condy, and Andrea Cremer for this honor? Anything you would like to say specifically to fans of your series, particularly the teens that nominated you and helped you win your place in the Top Ten for the year?
Thank you! It’s such an honor to be included in the Teens’ Top Ten–there is no better list to be on. It’s a “teens’ choice” list where teens and teens alone nominate their favorite books. I’d like to say THANK YOU to everyone who voted for Crescendo!
