Drum roll please .... (even though it's anticlimactic since the shortlist has been out for four days) ....
In no particular order, I give you the
2010 Cybils Middle Grade Fiction Shortlist!
Milo: Sticky Notes and Brain Freeze (hooray! I [Ashley] fought for this one!)
Betti on the High Wire (hooray #2!)
Crunch (hooray! Alysa was pullin' for this one!)
The Strange Case of Origami Yoda (I'm smiling just thinking about this one.)
Belly Up (a mysteriously murdered hippo in a zoo ... need we say more?)
Because of Mr. Terupt
The Kneebone Boy
Awesome list, if we do say so ourselves. I can't imagine how those round-2 judges are going to choose.
