Hey there all of you! We're so lucky to have some real friends of First Second all over the place.

Congrats to Mark, Lauren, and Gene! In Seattle, I was delighted to hear the winner of the Printz Medal. . . American Born Chinese! I thought that the Printz Medal would go to The Book Thief or the Astonishing Tales of Octavian Nothing. However, when those two books were announced as Printz Honor books, I knew the American Born Chinese would win!

As a member of the 2007 BBYA selection committee, I nominated American Born Chinese for this list as well. I am glad it made the BBYA list as well as the BBYA top ten list.

Hey David, thanks for the heads-up about the "Great Graphic Novels for Teens" list, glad to see my Mohawk Country made the list.

What wonderful news and a terrific reward for a great comics! Congrats to Gene and all of you at First Second!!

Some First Second titles also made it on to the "Great Graphic Novels for Teens" list
