Just in case you didn’t get enough outstanding books for Christmas this year, you should be able to find plenty to entice you over at the Cybils blog since the 2011 finalists have been announced.
Of course, I’m particularly interested in the Middle Grade Fiction list, since I’m excited to be a member of the judging panel again this year. So here are those titles:
Darth Paper Strikes Back – by Tom Angleberger
Ghetto Cowboy – by G. Neri
Nerd Camp – by Elissa Brent Weissman
The Friendship Doll – by Kirby Larson
The Great Wall of Lucy Lu – by Wendy Wan-Long Shang
Warp Speed – by Lisa Yee
Words in the Dust – by Trent Reedy
