Liam Cool, except that some of these books aren't middle grade. Awesome otherwise. Loved the third cahills vs vespers book. Surprised it isn't higher on the list.

Dana ~the difference between them and me is that i will not fall~ I wonder: How many MG books were actually published in 2012? To give us some perspective about how great these books actually rank?

EDIT: I just realized that it said ALL middle grade fiction published in 2012 is listed here. Really?
