National Book Awards 2011 - Young People's Fiction

 This year there are SIX finalist in the Young People's Literature Division of the National Book Awards:

Chime by Franny Billingsley - which we read and discussed in the Goodreads Mock Printz Group.

Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai - we read and are discussing in our SJCPL Mock Newbery book club tomorrow and I mentioned it.

Shine by Lauren Myracle - which we read and discussed in the Goodreads Mock Printz Group and I mentioned it.

 Okay for Now by Gary Schmidt - one of my top choices in the SJCPL Mock Newbery book club.

Flesh and Blood So Cheap by Albert Marrin - Johnathan Hunt mentions this on the Heavy Medal: Mock Newbery blog as a Newbery contender but I haven't read it yet.

My Name is Not Easy by Debby Dahl Edwardson - this one comes to me out of left field! Last year Dark Water by Laura McNeal took me by surprise and I ended up reading it for Nerds Heart YA and LOVED it.  Will have to pick this one up soon too!

The winners will be announced Wednesday, November 16, 2011 so that gives us one month to get our read on!

Which ones do you still need to read?
