message 1: by Windy (new)

Windy Hunter Wasn't The Other, Better Me by Antony John published in October of 2019? Is it eligible?


message 2: by Lorie (new)

Lorie Loved Catherine's War, but the author is French and as I understand it this is a translation from the French. This might not be eligible for a Newbery which is unfortunate.

Same goes for How to Make Friends with the Sea (which I also loved). The author herself has said she's not eligible--however it's nice to see her listed anyway!

Also isn't The House in the Cerulean Sea not children's fiction? It definitely features children, but I'm pretty sure it's adult.


message 4: by Melissa (ladybug) (last edited Oct 09, 2020 09:07AM) (new)

Melissa (ladybug) I read The House in the Cerulean Sea and it isn't a children's book. The MC is 40 years old and works as a social worker, and it is also a romance between the MC and another person. Although it features children, I wouldn't even tag it as Young Adult.


message 5: by KIM (new)

KIM Noticed a few doubles on the list (affecting their scores?):
Here in the Real World
When You Trap a Tiger
We Dream of Space
Leaving Lymon
King and the Dragonflies


message 6: by Yapha (new)

Yapha Hi! I couldn't find a Mock Newbery 2022 list, so I started one here: https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/1...

I hope you will come vote!
