Truthful Historical Fiction

Written by Francisca Goldsmith on Wednesday, July 27, 2016
No matter the genre, good fiction has the capacity to present truths more directly and accessibly than any other word-based communication. We tell and listen to stories for entertainment—yet, just as significant to us is that these entertainments reveal reality compactly and with memorable coherence. Week 13 gives us a pair of historical fiction novels that breathe life back into times past.

Announcing yet another Printz!

We are rich with award winning titles this year, including ON THE JELLICOE ROAD, by Melina Marchetta, an Australian novelist who is both popular and the subject of praise from critics, teachers, and even kids who haven't much cared for reading before meeting her characters.

Week 4 Enchantment and Empathic Emotion

Written by Michele Cobb on Tuesday, May 26, 2015

AudioFile editors get to listen to new audiobooks all year long, and as we listen, we often note special recordings that would make excellent additions to SYNC. We also review the many reading lists, published by schools and public libraries, with their suggestions of titles teens would enjoy. By noticing shared themes between these two sources we discovered this week's likely pair.
