- Sara Zarr recommends some great books, including Bennett Madison's wonderful wonderful The Blonde of the Joke.
- Errol Morris on lying again, with Ricky Jay.
- Stacy Whitman condenses a discussion on YA and middle grade and the differences between them (particularly in relation to their frequent conflation in SFF).
- An interview with Kathleen Duey, whose follow-up to her brilliant novel Skin Hunger is out now. Yay! (Sacred Scars, for those not keeping track.)
- A dissenting opinion on the first 100 pages of Little Brother that I'm linking because I like contrarian posts, generally speaking. (In other words, this doesn't mean that I agree, but that I found the discussion interesting.)
- Justine Musk has some wise words on revision.

Dissenting opinion? I think about half the reviews I’ve read of Little Brother sounded like that.
I hadn’t seen anyone else questioning the accuracy of some of the “hipster” stuff, and most of the major review attention it got was positive (though I’ll admit I didn’t read everything)… and given the award noms.
A quick check shows at least three starred reviews–SLJ, Booklist and Horn Book.
One of the more recent and articulate negative reviews is Abigail Nussbaum’s.
Sacred Scars is out? (Heads out to scrounge up copy!)
