A book review by Nikita Agrawal, Gr. 12, was published in the October issue of the nationally distributed Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA). A professional journal read by librarians serving teens in school and public libraries, VOYA boasts a readership of over 20,000. Agrawal worked closely with Lauri Vaughan, US librarian, who underwent an application process before she became a regular critic of professional, non-fiction and fiction titles for the journal two years ago. VOYA assigned Vaughan and Agrawal “The Deep” by Helen Dunmore and sent advanced copies of the title last June. Agrawal and Vaughan submitted their reviews, which they prepared independently, to editors shortly afterward. The reviews provide a short introduction and critical analysis as well as ratings for popularity and quality. Agrawal and Vaughan each gave favorable assessments to the book, the third in the popular “Ingo” series by the British author. An avid reader and member of the US Reading Club, Agrawal follows in the footsteps of alum Denzil Sikka ’09, who was also published in VOYA. The book and the review are currently on display in the upper school library.
