Why are we cheering? Because Scythe by Neal Shusterman is a 2017 Michael L. Printz Honor Book!

Scythe really is a riveting read and the honor is well deserved!  If you haven’t had a chance to read it yet, you really should! In this chilling new series, two teens must learn the “art of killing.”

A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery: humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now Scythes are the only ones who can end life—and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control.

Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe—a role that neither wants. These teens must master the “art” of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.

In honor of this honor, we’re giving away 5 signed copies of Scythe! Plus, if you still haven’t had a chance to read it yet, for the duration of our sweeps, we’re featuring an extended excerpt again so go ahead and give it a read!

    The story is so interesting I wanted to read this the first time I saw it. It would be nice to know how the author approaches the dilemma of choosing which lives to take away and which ones to spare. Who decides and why did he or they have that power.

  38. Anastasia says:

    Congrats to Mr. Shusterman! He has the ability to take the coolest concepts and tie them to very meaningful things (death, life, what it means to be human, mental illness), so you get more than a good read; you get a chance to think a little. 😉 I really enjoyed CHALLENGER DEEP, and I’m reading SCYTHE right now and enjoying it just as much. I’d love a signed copy!
