I haven’t mentioned Tap Out in a while because I’m gearing up for the release of Dare Me, but that gritty novel is still gathering attention. Booklist just named Tap Out a “Top 10 Sports Book for Youth: 2013.”
That makes two lists for Tap Out, with the 2013 YALSA Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers and now Booklist. If you are a teacher, librarian, parent, uncle, aunt, whatever, of a teen who likes dark material, who is a reluctant reader, who may like sports, I think it’s a safe assumption that you will succeed in putting Tap Out into your reader’s hands.
And remember, Dare Me is still on the way. Who knows how many lists this title will find its way onto?
