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.

My kids really liked Anything But Typical by Nora Raleigh Baskin, All The Broken Pieces by Ann Burg and Wild Things by Clay Carmichael. Personally, I'm rooting for When You Reach Me.

Welcome to the group, Brian! My kids are in 5th & 6th grade. Do you think the first three titles you mentioned would be appropriate for that age group? I always look forward to the big announcement. I haven't picked a winner since Holes was chosen!!
