Our online ballot winners…and looking ahead
Despite a last minute plea for more honors, I think we’ll call the results of our online ballot:
OKAY FOR NOW by Gary Schmidt, published by Clarion, a division of Houghton Mifflin
Our honors, in alphabetical order:
AMELIA LOST: THE LIFE AND DISAPPEARANCE OF AMELIA EARHART by Candance Fleming, published by Schwartz & Wade, a division of Random House
A MONSTER CALLS by Patrick Ness, published by Candlewick Press
But stayed tuned for our official Mock Newbery winners to be decided on Monday, January 16th….where I wouldn’t be surprised if we’re able to shake out some different results! (If you’re planning on coming, but haven’t received an email with location/time details, please email me.) Between now and the actual award announcements at ALA Midwinter (Jonathan and I will be there!), we’ll also be looking at other Mock Newbery results, and other contenders that didn’t make our shortlist.
So… your question for today:
If you’d been able to introduce one “wild card” vote into your top 3, what would the title have been, what would it have bumped, and why?
