Since I'm in the middle of my Committee Year, I haven't gotten to read as much middle grade as I've wanted. It's never too early to start thinking about the Newbery and I'm curious to know what books have been gaining buzz and what you think will be showing up on Mock Newbery lists this Fall. I have a few that I have my eye on!
-A historical novel in verse, I've had my eye on May B ever since I reviewed it earlier this year.
-I'm part of a group on Facebook called the Centurians and this one has gotten some award buzz from fellow librarians in the group!
-I've heard lots of early buzz around this one!
-She's a previous Newbery winner and a fantastic writer!
-So many people have been buzzing about this book. I think it's a better fit for the Schneider Family Book Award than it is for Newbery.
Anything else to add to the Mock Newbery List?
