Michael L. Printz Award - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Michael L. Printz Award is an American Library Association literary award that annually recognizes the "best book written for teens, based entirely on its literary merit".[1] It is sponsored by Booklist magazine, administered by the ALA's young-adult division YALSA, and is named for the Topeka, Kansas school librarian Mike Printz, a long-time active member of the Young Adult Library Services Association.[1]

Four worthy runners up may be designated Honor Books and three or four have been named every year.

Nick Lake won the 14th Printz Award (2013) for In Darkness, published by Bloomsbury Books for Young Readers. It was announced during the ALA midwinter meeting, January 28, 2013. Four Honor Books were named.[2]
