The Ghosts of Heaven by Marcus Sedgwick - Printz Honor

Split into four "quarters" and spanning several genres, this book epically tells stories about madness, obsession, and creation across generations and moments in time. From a girl creating cave drawings, the trials of the 17th century witch hunts, and a 1920s insane asylum, Marcus Sedgwick connects them in an unexpected way that will keep you thinking.

 
 
 
 
 
 
Out of Darkness by Ashley Hope Pérez - Printz Honor

Growing up in New London, Texas in 1937, Naomi and Wash are well aware of the lines that you just do not cross. The color line is one of them, but their attraction is just too strong and the two of them are willing to cross it. With a backdrop of the New London school explosion—the worst school disaster in American history—this story is about love, loss, family and our past.
