What book do you feel should win the Newbery Medal?


(I tried to include all the books we have read, along with the books mentioned on our "the others good and up" thread, and a few on the Newbery 2010 list on goodreads. If, however, I have not included a book you want to vote for just send me a message or write a comment. I will add it to the list.)

Kathleen This is a great little story about friendship. It has my vote for well drawn characters and plot. There is a timelessness to the story as well.

Elly I can't decided between Shanon Hales' Forest Born, and Rick Riordan's The Last Olympian...
The Last Olympian was a fun book, and very good one out of that series (and many other things). Well written and a very good read.
But Forest Born was the one I liked least in that series. Still a very good book. But nothing is as magical as the first one (Goose Girl).


message 3: by Heather (new)

Heather I am holding a mock Newbery with my sixth grade students. When You Reach Me is the hands-down winner with them. I liked it quite a bit, but I think All The Broken Pieces could be a contender. I thought it was beautiful and moving, well-written, and that it explored an important theme. But, I'm voting for When You Reach Me here because I have talked to a librarian who is on the Caledecott committee this year and his bet is When You Reach Me will win. I think it's a great story that kids can relate to, and we have had some very lively discussions with my students about it. So if the committee thinks like most of the kids and librarians I know, it's a winner.
