I am a LMS at Wendell Middle in Wake Co. NC. This is an exciting opportunity to participate in a new technology frontier for teaching and learning. I’m a bit overwhelmed while getting started!
I’m currently reading “Nothing” by Janne Teller and Martin Aitken. The writing is philosophical and dark, akin to something Camus would write or enjoy reading. I’m still waiting to find if Pierre Anthon can be shaken from his conviction that life holds no real meaning.

You’re off to a great start, Linda. Thanks for being the first to start our conversation about this year’s Melinda-Printz Award-winning books. Teller’s Nothing has the sole distinction of being selected as representing the highest literary quality by the Eva Perry teen readers and the official Printz Committee. I wish you could have heard the teens who advocated for this book. Hey, you will get a chance to hear them when we all “stand up” for the books we believe in at the Melinda Awards, Feb. 18, 5:30 to 7:00 pm ET. I’ll be curious to see if teachers will choose to teach with Nothing, often referred to as a “Lord of the Flies” for this century. Thanks again.
