- Cornelia Funke shows up in the comments over at Roger Sutton's to discuss the collaborative process for her new book.
- Tune in to the #genderinYA discussion going wildfire today over at twitter, kicked off by Maureen Johnson.
- Katherine Langrish has a dead interesting post about magical rooms in kids' and YA fiction: "A room of one's own. Many children do not have one. They share with brothers or sisters. They lead lives ruled by adults. A room of one's own, for a child, is a place where it can be in control. It's also a place to start out from: the firm base of safety from which a child can explore the world. Rooms in children's or young adult fiction, therefore, often reflect the desirable qualities of a perfect personal space."
- A YA best of 2009 list with some books I haven't seen discussed as much over at Flashlight Worthy. (I absolutely adored Eyes Like Stars.)
