2006 Award
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
(J.K. Rowling, Scholastic $29.99 Score:) The sixth in the best-selling series about Harry Potter and his adventures at Hogwart’s School of Magic. Darker than earlier titles, some of our tween readers were even more disturbed by the amount of kissing in this book. While some found the ending crushingly sad, it has elicited great speculation about what will happen in the final book.
