Any predictions for the winners this year? The announcement will be made at ALA Mid Winter, January 18th, at 7:45 A.M. "When you Reach Me" by Rebecca Stead has been mentioned SO many times. My favorite 2009 title is "Heart of a Shepherd" by Rosanne Parry. It's such a positive realistic fiction title that has broad appeal.
