I have been watching the nominations and putting in my favorite books. I am on the Middle Grade Fiction Round 1 Panel this year. We are going to chose the top five best books and then pass them on to the Round 2 Judges in December, who will select one winner to be announced in February 2013. I am eagerly anticipating reading all these wonderful books for children ages 6 - 12. If your family's favorite isn't on the list go add it! Cause you know I want to read whatever your kids are loving.
Just remember it has to be a children's or young adult book published in the U.S. or Canada between Oct. 16, 2011 and Oct. 15, 2012. Basically it's the books released within the past year. They are very strict about that so check the release date on your book.
Here are a few books I wish I could add to the other lists: (everyone is only allowed to put in ONE title in each category)
Make sure you check the lists here to see if someone has already nominated it, because you can't double dip and you will get bounced if you try. Go nominate!
