The 2015 Morris finalists are:

Day 2 of the Morris Finalists' Blog Tour saw another full slate of blog posts about these five debut novelists, which this year, were all published by independent presses. ¡Vivan los Indies! 

Over at Wacky Momma Reads  we continue with a review of Gabi, A Girl in Pieces, where Wacky Momma realizes that, even though she's not a fan of diary-type novels, she liked this one. 

YA Bibliophile follows with a review of The Story of Owen, She liked the book because it was unique and she loves a love a book that keeps  "engaged and guessing throughout." 

Writers' Rumpus (http://writersrumpus.com/2015/01/27/the-strange-and-beautiful-sorrows-of-ava-lavender-by-leslye-walton/) calls The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender "haunting" and "thought-provoking."

Who R U suggests The Scar Boys is "a must-read story about finding your place in the world…even if you carry scars inside and out." 

The Reading Zone interviews Jessie Ann Foley, author of Carnival of Bray. Jessie Ann says, among other things, "One of my favorite parts about writing is how the story can surprise you: you think it’s going to be about one thing, but then you start to discover it’s about something else."
