After a great afternoon of book-chatting and minor debates, our Mock Printz participants selected their winners.
We chose Nothing by Janne Teller as our winner. Our two honor books were Revolver by Marcus Sedgwick and Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta. Now all we have to do is wait for January 10th to see if we got close to selecting the winning titles.
As for me, I definitely had some personal favorites this year. It's always so hard to guess which direction the award selection committee will go. If I had to pick, I would choose Nothing, Revolver, and one that didn't make our Mock Printz list: Butterfly by Sonya Hartnett (still need to blog that one!). Another librarian recommended that book to me, and I wish it had been published before we created our list.
What are your picks for the Printz?
