Golden Duck Award

This should have been up here weeks ago, but you know how it is.
The Golden Duck Award for Excellence in Children's Sci-Fi lit was a tie! A good tie, between Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Little Brother by Cory Doctorow.

You know, I enjoyed reading Little Brother, but I remember writing a post ages ago where I sort of complained about its endless explaining of things. But it turns out that even now, many months later, I still find valuable uses for some of the things I learned. For instance, I learned a simple way to find hidden cameras in rooms, and you know I'm paranoid enough that I tried it out in my new apartment. And now I can undress without fear.
