Hey! Have you seen the 2012 Cybils finalists for Young Adult Fiction?
BOY21 by Matthew Quick
CODE NAME VERITY by Elizabeth Wein
ENDANGERED by Eliot Schrefer
I HUNT KILLERS by Barry Lyga
ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL by Jesse Andrews
THE STORYTELLER by Antonia Michaelis
This post aptly gives a synopsis for each book. The Round 1 Young Adult Fiction judges had the daunting task of culling the long list of nominees down to the six books above right in the midst of the holiday season. I’m sure much was sacrificed in the effort!
As a Round 2 Judge, I have the privilege of working with a group of fantastic bloggers to determine which one of the finalists should be crowned the winnah. I’ve only read one book on the list so it’s nice to not have a lot of preconceived notions going in. It won’t be easy but I’m excited to get started!
