2nd Ballot Results — Good Work!
The field has been further narrowed.
The opinions have been weighed and considered.
The votes are more concentrated.
But… we still do not have a WINNER!
The front runner is I’m Just No Good at Rhyming with SIX 1st Place Votes and total of 31 points.
However, it still has not received the necessary EIGHT 1st Place Votes. Nor does it have an 8-point lead over Princess Cora and War I Finally Won.
So, Heavy Medal Mock Newbery Fifteen members, you must discuss again. If at all possible, please point out strengths or flaws that have not yet been raised by others on the Committee.
We will ballot again tonight — at 7:00 P.M. EST. And hopefully to publish results either tonight or tomorrow morning. Our deadline for selecting a winner will be sometime Wednesday….
We also welcome Heavy Medal Readers to comment on the process and the results so far.
