Congratulations to Melina Marchetta

Australian Melina Marchetta's novel On the Jellicoe Road (aka Jellicoe Road) has won The Michael L. Printz Award for Excellence in Young Adult Literature for 2009.

“This roller coaster ride of a novel grabs you from the first sentence and doesn’t let go. You may not be sure where the ride will take you, but every detail—from the complexities of the dual narrative to the pangs of first love—is pitch perfect,” said Printz Award Committee Chair Mary Arnold.
